The city seen as a laboratory divided into different areas: an observation area, an acceleration area, an area of slowing down/contact/communication, an area where all these things happen.
Three actions to understand the state of a city through perspective, identification and analysis.
The title Tre film che volete vedere is inspired by three films of the Lumière Brothers, “The sprinkler sprinkled”, “The arrival of a train at the station of La Ciotat”, “Workers leaving the factory”, that become – under the direction of Polish director Wojciech Krukowski – three surprise street actions in three different areas of the city of Florence, in the street, among pedestrians and passengers arriving and departing from a station.
