GHOST OF THE MOUNTAINS (2016) - A meditative film journey to Mongolia’s wilderness in search of the endangered snow leopard. A very rare photo of a snow leopard from northwestern Mongolia in 2014 starts a Danish-Italian research expedition. A team of researchers travel 8,000 kilometers into the remote national park Silkhem B. to place 50 camera traps to help examine how the snow leopard population is doing in the area. The documentary follows the expedition on the three-week journey through the national park’s icy mountain landscapes in search of a snapshot of the snow leopard. At the same time the film gives a realistic insight into scientific fieldwork and the researchers’ efforts to preserve one of the world’s most endangered species. The expedition reveals that the snow leopard status is far more critical than first thought, due to an increase of domestic animals and humans to the area. The film gives opportunity to reflect on the human role and its imprint on nature. If man and nature can’t coexist in one of the most desolate places on earth - where then? The film has been shown at Trento Film Festival 2016 in Italy and participates in the competition for best film at Bansko Mountain Film Festival in late 2016 in Bulgaria.

This dark comedy focuses on the themes of remembrance, and the marks we leave behind us after death. A reflection on how memory can be manipulated in the perception of those who grieve the death of their beloved ones. Giorgio Priscoli, owner of a funeral home, launches a new service for the families of the departed: to enhance and embellish the memory left by loved ones after their death. Helped by his colleagues, Giorgio turns ordinary lives of ordinary people into fabulous or even adventurous existences. Thus, the manipulation of memory becomes collective joy and approval. Nothing is final, definitive, not even death. At the end of the funeral, during the final act of life, the last eulogy is recited and thus the departed has the chance to reborn in people’s eyes, to live a new existence as a spy, a philanthropist or a hero. Never say never.

Completed just a few weeks before Sciola’s recent passing, Born of Stone is an immersion inside the sights and sound of remarkable artists, and inside his belief that stones are not just the material that gives shape to the universe, but that they are alive, plastic, a fundamental way to communicate with nature.

Modern Houses is psychological-thriller about the creative process. Max Lin had been architecture’s celebrated young star. Perched on the cutting edge of form and function, her stunning, sculptural designs challenged the conventional limits of buildings as art. A year ago, her career derailed. Under the weight of brilliance, expectation, endless delays, and the eyes of her own face staring back at her from the cover of Architectural Digest, she cracked. But now she’s back. Having locked herself away for the last 72 hours, racing to finish the model of what will be her greatest design, she steps back for the final look. It’s perfect. Beyond the shadow of a doubt...or a whisper.
