Atelier Montez – Inexistent
From the need to document the “Pietralarte 2017” festival, promoted by Atelier Montez, on a media medium, the docu-film “InEsistente” directed by Gio Montez, starring Ludovico Fremont, was born. The director with a hand-held camera wanders around the historic outskirts of Rome, Pietralata during the sultry months of the Roman summer to document the absurd performances that the acrobats of Pietralarte and the artists create in the Valle dell’Aniene cultural district.
Fremont, the only professional actor without a part, wanders the chaotic Roman underground in search of the theater in which to audition. His adventure represents the fictional narrative thread that alternates with the performances of the artists of the festival and the images taken by the audience’s smartphones.
The film, made in collaboration with Il Varco Cinema and with the contribution of the Department of Culture of Rome and the Lazio Region, was presented at the MUVIS “Museum of Wine and Agri-food Sciences” in Castiglione in Teverina (VT) on the occasion of the festival “Insolito Fellini… An unknown woman” of 2020.
