streaming > Molecules (Molecole) by Andrea Segre


As part of Films Across Borders 2021, a series of critically acclaimed films, documentaries, and shorts from around the world co-presented by American University, we are pleased to announce the screening of Molecules (Molecole), a documentary by Andrea Segre.

Stuck in his hometown, Venice, during the pandemic, director Andrea Segre turns the camera on the frozen city, while reminiscing about his father and the past. Personal archives in Super8 and the real protagonist of the film alternate with encounters with the locals, who talk about the relationship between Venice and water whilst experiencing the unexpected arrival of the great void that has invaded their city and the world.
