Comments

I chose the films that gave me the most pleasure and enthusiasm, eccentric and extraordinary films by ironic pioneers, trans-real mutt movies, crossbreeding genres, cinema of the interval, cine-cosmopolitan, i.e. films that promote solidarity between the author and the spectator. I also chose films that influenced my work (hoping that my films will influence the future reading of those movies of the past).
