SKYSCRAPER CINEMA

by Marco Bertozzi

synopsis

Pop Art interiors, psychic drifting, insane residents’ meetings, and the myths of mass tourism seen from the Rimini Skyscraper, one of the symbolic buildings of the city. 100 metres tall, inaugurated in 1959 as an icon of a small town that was being transformed into a beachfront metropolis, the building, considered by some an eco-monster and by others as a technological paradise, today is a vertical neighbourhood, inhabited by people from about 20 different countries. Its humanity and landscape are examined in the first person by one of its residents, the director, in an open reflection on the means of representation in contemporary documentaries.
