“Journeys, those magic caskets full of dream like promises”
Claude Lévi Strauss
To talk of cinema is to talk of a journey. Films recount solo or group journeys, taken for many reasons: leisure, necessity, thirst for knowledge, escape, curiosity; they can convey either pleasure and happiness or pain and frustration.
Films take us on a journey, allow us to travel across places and live incredible situations, offer us the chance to challenge ourselves and others, sometimes exploring our own rational limits. A journey is experience. Detour tackles every language, from full-length fiction to documentary, with a double focus both on Italian and foreign last-season works that have not been distributed in Italy.
Building a festival is always a journey, complex and fascinating, made up mostly of good fellow adventurers.
With us there are Luca Trivellato and his staff who have strongly supported and embraced our idea right away.
“Our – Luca Trivellato, CEO of the company, explains – has been a long journey into the world of mobility. The trip is for us a metaphor of extraordinary freedom, discovery and innovation. Our support for this festival was not born on chance. We believe in the culture as a tool for activation of a territory and as a time of great dynamism and the cinema is always a world full of magic and thought.
Detour Festival is organized by fondazione march.
