  • Synopsis

    “Il sindaco del rione Sanità” is perhaps the most modern work of Eduardo De Filippo. Eduardo manages to make Neapolitan reality coexist, a gangster movie plot and the story of classic and complex family relationships and virile friendship. The dramaturgical lines of the film are three: The first is horizontal and follows the story of the work. Martone's fidelity to the text is dialectical, but the original events do not change, the plot is clear. The second makes the extra theatre resound inside. In a mirror system, the scenes of Il Sindaco find a parallel in the exterior paintings, in fragments of the life of the neighbourhood and of the actors / inhabitants. The third dramaturgical line is vertical and is what the film imposes on the play. Being able to choose the individual scenes between versions of different phases, we will pass - for example - from scenes in costume, to others at the table in the initial reading, to others in preparatory improvisation, to others still discussed and directed by the director, up to scenes in front of public. The narrative mechanism is therefore cinematographic, the plot of the pièce is followed by using a time and a documentary observation.  
    The short film features actors and the director of “Il Sindaco del rione Sanità”. Around them are moving the NEST theatre, the entire district of San Giovanni a Teduccio and Naples. Outside and inside the theatre fiction, the actors are characters in the film, primarily characterized by the role in the play, but also by their memories of the places and how they cross them. Mario Martone at work is side by side with the actors and his place is the stage. The comprehension of the text, the construction of psychologies and the daily search for stage actions are the spaces of the film's director-character.

    FilmaP is based on the concept that individual development and education can be positively linked to audiovisual languages and means. By doing so, the project aims to contribute to improve the educational approach to film and audiovisuals, which is very absent in Italian education system, putting Italy in a very weak position in Europe. This consideration is even stronger in a deprived contest like that of the outskirt of Naples always characterized by poverty, lack of social structures and drop off at school. Therefore the centre add more values to the big effort made in many years for cultural enhancement.
