Nadia Ranocchi & David Zamagni – All Inclusive vs. Joule (Italy, 2010)
64 minutes (All Inclusive) + 22 minutes (Joule) | Elebash Recital Hall
Italian with English subtitles
All inclusive and Joule are films that deal with the topic of work, investigating the complex, certain, and contradictory relation between work, giving, and sacrifice. Both movies are representative of ZAPRUDER’s different approaches to film narration that, in the case of All inclusive, is in the form of novella, while Joule is articulated by sums of tableaux, thus reconnecting the movie to Marcel Mauss’ anthropological and economic essay which brought it to life.
The partnership between David Zamagni & Nadia Ranocchi led, in 2000, to the founding of ZAPRUDER, a collective of filmmakers based in Italy. They are authors and directors of films and installations that have been presented in major international film festivals and art venues. ZAPRUDER’s lively production relies on an artisanal practise and inquisitive spirit, as in their stereoscopic series inaugurated in 2006 and awarded at the Venice Film Festival in 2011. The group film-projects are often flexible cinematic devices, which ZAPRUDER defines as “Chamber Cinema”: an incarnated environment and disembodied theatre, poised between visual and performing arts.
