Opening Premiere YOUNG EUROPE
Director: Matteo Vicino Screenwriting: Matteo Vicino Photography: Alessandro Leone Editing: Matteo Vicino Production: Alessia Fumo, Federica Cacciola Country: Italy Runtime: 01 hr : 37 min : 00 sec Premiere
Maria Luisa De Crescenzo, Victoria Oberli
Young Europe tells 3 stories of young Europeans: Federico and Annalisa, who make friends with a 35 year old that still makes the life of the boy; Julian, the promise of basketball, engaged to the sweet Sarah, but in love with his Spanish teacher, and Josephine, beautiful and rich girl, subject to any kind of addiction. The background to their personal affairs are France, Italy, Ireland and Slovenia. The lives of the characters are intertwined in the tragedy that affects more than 100 people a day throughout Europe: road accidents. This issue is explored in a new way that questions about the causes, exploring the theme of parent-child, adult-young, investigating family relationships and society. "Young Europe" is an intense and innovative movie about young, and for young but suitable for all levels of interpretation.

Set in the world of finance, Margin Call is a thriller involving the key man of an investment bank during the dramatic 24 hourse before 2008 financial crisis. When Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto), simple analyst, comes into possesion of infos taht could destroy the company, a run against the time begins: financial and moral decision at stake will upset the lives of all people involved dragging them to the edge of the abyss. Widening the boundaries of this genre, Margin Call is a fascinating analysis of the human aspect of a subject too often not examined objectively.

He is currently under contract with Warner Bros for the script of two films, the first of whom is a thriller developed by Appian Way, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Kiloran, that DiCaprio himself could be starring in. Chandor graduated in America Studies and Film Studies at College of Wooster in Ohio and studied cinematographic production at New York University. Grown in New York and London's suburbs, he now lives in Providence with his wife, paintress Cameron Goodyear, and their 5 years daughter and 6 months son.
