Two young men in their thirties, Roberto and Daniele, decided to give up their stable jobs in order to give life to S'Avanzada Climbing Cagliari, an outdoor climbing centre, located right in the heart of the Sardinian capital. S'AVANZADA tells of the joys and hardships they went through in embarking on this adventure.
Born in Cagliari in 1992, he moved to Bologna at the age of 19, subsequently graduating there, first in Communications Science and then in Anthropology. He has worked on several documentaries and in summer 2020 he began filming his first film: S’AVANZADA, as co-author, director and co-producer.
PREMIO “MARIO BELLO”
Two young men in their 30s, escaping a conformist future, do everything possible to avoid dissipating energy by accepting the pre-established roles imposed by society, taking on responsibilities declined by others. Their dialogues are brief, self-aware and desperate, but can be summarised in their firm intention to overcome the employment crisis with a great desire to “flourish”, which for them means adventure, understood as the ability to interact with those who see life in the same way, but also putting themselves out there and at risk, as in every true enterprise. They discover that what really counts is still, as always, the possibility of making a contribution to other people’s lives, however ephemeral.
