One hundred years ago a devastating earthquake and a subsequent and equally horrific tsunami hit and largely destroyed Messina and Reggio Calabria - the Straits cities. One hundred thousand dead. The “Scossa” project has joined together four, particular, “interpretative views” parlayed into four films by four Italian directors: Ugo Gregoretti, Carlo Lizzani, Francesco Maselli and Nino Russo. Each film (lasting between 15 and 20 minutes each) was created free from any structural or linguistic constraint; thus each is different from the others but all the while connected by a humble yet ambitious intent to interpret, each in its own way, a single particular aspect of the catastrophe.
