We should all be futurists

Angela Norelli / Italy / 2023 / 11′ / Silent / English signs | Italian subtitles

Between the 1910s and 1920s, in an allusive correspondence, Rosa confides a secret to her friend Giorgina: the man-machine that Marinetti talks about is not a near future for men, as the Futurists say. It is a present for women, which Georgina can receive by mail.
