What We're Really Proud Of

In 2019, we realised Butterflies in Berlin, an animated short written by Monica Manganelli, focusing on gender identity during the holocaust. It won a number of awards all around the world and has been selected for more than 100 festival. It was shown during the Memorial Week at the Italian Embassy in Berlin and you can watch freely on RAI-Play in Italy or on HereTV in USA. In 2020 we co-produced Space Beyond, a documentary about the Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano and the European Space Agency’s mission “Beyond”. Luca Parmitano is the first Italian Commander of the International Space Station (ISS) and gives a voice to the men and women travelling to space. Check it out on NowTV. In 2022 we collaborated again with the European Space Agency (ESA): our short script Mångata won the the ESA New World Competition Fund and it will be soon screened in ESA channel. Stay tuned!
