This Summer Mosquitos Will Be Worst than Ever

The Film All-Nighter

»The most used words by media and politicians are: alert, danger and catastrophe.«
– Silvia De Gennaro

What happens when the media blow up midges into a plague of dangerous insects is the subject of Quest’estate le zanzare sarrano più cattive. The film title is the heading of a newspaper article. In Claudia De Gennaro‘s film, this symbolises the kind of journalism that doe not inform the reader but makes him afraid. The protagonist locks herself up in a darkroom so that she can weave a spider‘s web to cope with the plague of evil insects.
