Alfredo Leonardi

Living & Glorious (1965) 16mm, black and white, 20 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: Literature & Theater

"Leonardi's film about the Living Theatre is less concerned with a straight documentary presentation of the exile theatre group from New York, but rather is concerned with the specific atmospheric factor which is indicated by their name, and which constitutes the highly suggestive effect of their playing. Cutting, for Leonardi, is the most decisive aesthetic device. The result is a wonderfully composed furioso of pictures. The hand-held camera catches rehearsals, conversations without sound, bits of theatre and daily life actions (which, for Living Theatre people, is very often intermixed). --Ingeborg Husterey, Der Welt, Berlin, Jan. 17, 1996.

Se L'Inconscio Si Revella (If the Unconscious Revolts) (1967) 16mm, black and white, 19 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Children & Youth

Also in this film, like in all my previous ones, there is a direct connection between inner urges and cinematic rendering. I tried to visualize my present aspiration to recover, through the various ways taught by one's experience, the easiness, directness and ripeness proper to children's relationships and affective life. This film is maybe a track of this path backwards. --A. L.

A (temporary) leave of many friends who are my truest world, with the attempt of getting them together in an ideal summary conceived to support me during my being far away. --A. L. "...

"The Book of Saints of Rome" is in my book of living classics." --Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice, Oct. 23, 1969.
