Auguries for a Non-Hierarchical Framing and Flourishing pieces together traces of a series of communal experiments undertaken by the anarchist António Gonçalves Correia in southern Portugal: Comuna da Luz (The Commune of Light), in Vale de Santiago/Odemira (1917-18) and Comuna Clarão (The Blaze Commune) in Albarraque/Sintra (1926). The filmmaker writes, “Choral and in the making, the film is a tool for conviviality; it folds and unfolds in bewilderment, guided by the fulgor, or the potential for flourishing in non-hierarchical frames.”

Jeff Keen's unique and imaginative filmmaking has outlived the various scenes in which it thrived – the Sixties counterculture, punk and beyond. Making work of immediate power and raw intensity on a range of film stocks, this World War II veteran, self-taught artist and pioneer of radical British independent filmmaking continues to defy categorisation.
The competition (focused on experimental cinema) is open to films of any language and format, provided that they are Italian premières and the year of production is not prior to 2022. Mostra del nuovo Cinema di Pesaro will take place from 17-24 June.
