The Autorité de Régulation Professionnelle de la Publicité (ARPP) has ruled that this film cannot be broadcast in France because it creates “a climate of anxiety”. Is a thirty second spot of a melting car really too provocative for French TV?

CATASTROPHE ANTHEM is the second film in an ongoing body of work exploring the theme of mental health. I met Tuesday in a casting session back in 2017. A self proclaimed, self modified, Hollywood Idol. We spent a year in conversation, discussing themes of self image and the implications of social media on young people - Eventually unifying her anxiety for the future into a visual metaphor for the end of the world. Catastrophe Anthem is a siren song. A warning for a culture who value appearance over meaning.

The right to citizenship at birth, ‘ius soli’, is still unapproved in Italy, denying over a million children, born of immigrant parents, automatic citizenship.The film captures the story of an Italian basketball team, who were refused access to regional leagues because of the Italian born players’ immigration status.Former Italian basketball champion, Massimo Antonelli, started the team at a disused holiday complex in Castel Volturno, an area that is made up of 25,000 inhabitants, a fifth of which are registered migrants. Being free to join, it offered local teenagers a chance to participate in after school sports and was sustained by generous donations.The FPI (Italian Basketball Federation) rules stated that to compete, only 2 players per team could be migrants, which posed a problem for Antonelli and his team of hard working and committed players. Given his media status, he soon found himself at the centre of a debate about Italian citizenship and integration, and the question ‘what does it mean to be Italian?’ was brought to the fore.

A haunting audio-visual exploration of love and mourning by director Arnaldo Iñigo. Inspired by the life of Iñigo’s grandmother, who lost 2 children in separate tragic accidents, “Absence” is set to two tracks — “Flesh and Bone” by Black Math and Luke Atencio’s “A ghost,” featuring spoken word by Tom O’Bedlam. As Iñigo explains, the film is a presentation of grief as a process of reflection and acceptance, chronicling the need to reconcile with the purpose of life.
