Digital Dreams - Pardi di domani

Locarno Festival News (Stefan Ivančić) - Last but not least, Nathan Douglas’ La Cartographe begins with a series of long shots of a man jogging around the cityscape. A young woman observes him from her building’s balcony. What at first glance appears to be a voyeuristic film about a girl’s obsession with her neighbour’s life eventually turns into one of the most delicate and beautiful stories we have witnessed in a long time. A story on how people can become attached to each other without ever meeting. Douglas’ cinema is that of devotion, and his approach to humanity is an optimistic one, almost religious. We should dream more while waiting for 2019’s Pardi di domani.
