Visioni Fantastiche Online Edition starts with a short film made available by author Francesco Filippi, whose Red Hands won Best Short Film award of Competition 12+ during the Festival first edition.
“Loser Leg is a low-budget animation film that I wrote, directed and produced. I wanted to tell a story about a fictional physical defect so that it could be universal and, through it, viewers could be encouraged valuing their qualities. As art finds its strength in limitations, similarly we can find (or develop) surprising virtues thanks to our limits.” (Francesco Filippi)
“I’ve always had strong arms. They necessarily become so when you were born with boneless legs”. You don’t think to be perfect, do you? Loser Leg has sea legs and his schoolmates tie him everywhere.
