Progetto Fantascienza

L’idea di partire con un Progetto Fantascienza nasce, come è ovvio, dai miei interessi personali per l’argomento ma non solo. La cosa che mi ha più stupito e spinto alla creazione di questa iniziativa è l’aver notato come fin dalle origini questo genere abbia subito affascinato e ispirato autori e spettatori. La fantascienza, come avrò modo di dire più volte nel corso del progetto, non è solamente uno svago disinteressato, ma spesso e volentieri diviene specchio della situazione storica e culturale in cui il film o il racconto vedono la luce. Come spesso accade, quindi, il film può assumere diversi punti di lettura a seconda della profondità dell’analisi. In alcuni casi cercherò di mettere in evidenza i punti chiave per questa interpretazione qualora, ovviamente, io sia riuscito ad intravederli.

Dopo queste poche righe metterò il link alla presentazione del progetto, postata in data 08/03/2013, e sotto l’elenco (in continuo aggiornamento) dei film di fantascienza di cui sono venuto a conoscenza. Vi sono ovviamente grato di eventuali consigli su aggiunte o modifiche e in particolare per aiuti nel reperire quei film che, pur non essendo perduti, sono purtroppo di difficilissima o impossibile reperibilità.
Colgo infine l’occasione per ringraziare Alan M. Rosiene, per la sua disponibilità e gentilezza (in particolare riguardo le informazioni contenute in questa pagina).

    Dear friends, Sorry for write you in english, I don’t speak italian.

    There are good news from BFI. Now there is a brand new sci-fi section on BFI player where you will find incredible additions for Progetto Fantascienza. Check it now!

    I’ve founded an excerpt from “Liquid Electricity” included in a nice documentary from Thames Television (min. 06.29) [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJyND6k3Z1M]

    Finally and sadly, Filmoteca Española confirms to me the 1925’s film Madrid en el año 2000 is totally lost 😦

    Thank you very much.

      thank you for sharing the excerpt from “liquid Electricity”, the film seems very funny! I’m sad reading your news about “Madrid”, hope some private collector still have it in his collection or (who knows?) that is preserved in a Cinematheque around the World.
      Thank you 🙂

  2. dicembre 10, 2014 alle 1:45 am
