CAGLIARI. The screening of the winning films of the 2020 Kentzeboghes festival was the forerunner on Friday 3 December in the Greenwich hall at the Babel film festival dedicated to minority languages ​​which takes place from 6 to 11 December at the Thotel in Cagliari.

During the evening, two fictons and a documentary entirely in Sardinian were screened. The first short film was entitled “April 12”, directed by the journalist Antonello Deidda, who talks about two very important events for the city of Cagliari, with a common denominator: the date of April 12. In 1970 that day Cagliari won their only, historic Scudetto while in 2020, 50 years later, that day began the lockdown in the city due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The second “short” instead, entitled Santamaria, directed by Andrea Deidda, tells the story of a boxer who dreamed of becoming a great world champion. It is the story of Raimondo Gaviano, who had started boxing in the gyms of the Villanova district in Cagliari at the end of the 60s and who saw his career end with his death in the ring of his country of origin.

The documentary instead is entitled “S’acapiu de su sorighe de arbore sardu” shot by Fabizio Vella. Documentary dedicated to the Sardinian dormouse, a species that was thought to be extinct but which is still found on the island in few and very rare specimens.
