The “Poems in 8mm”, digitally restored, are the first works of Franco Piavoli, made with a simple camera, no crew, no production. Evasi is a black and white short featuring the faces, actions, and expressions of fans within a stadium.

From the Italian documentary cinema i already knew the extraordinary films of De Seta and Cecilia Mangini but, somehow, i didn't expect the novelty of these Piavoli's first films on 8mm. The world facing a camera that circumscribes it to the detail of the space-frame, articulated sequentially through a rigorous manipulation of sound, of realistic sounds in an artful free-of-realism continuity.
