Box set: Sul fondo della coscienza (In the depth of the consciousness)

April 14, 2024

A publishing event of international scope, to remember and celebrate one of Italy’s (and Europe’s) greatest intellectuals and writers: Giorgio Pressburger. Luce-Cinecittà brings together in one special box set the three films that director Mauro Caputo has dedicated to Pressburger’s personal, intellectual and visionary life.

Under the title “Sul fondo della coscienza” (In the Depth of the Consciousness) three films are released: L’orologio di Monaco (2014, presented at the Rome Film Festival), Il profumo del tempo delle favole (2016, Venice International Film Festival – Venice Days, awarded a Special Silver Ribbon for Lifetime Achievement to Pressburger), La legge degli spazi bianchi (2019, 76th Venice International Film Festival – Venice Days, finalist candidate for the Nastri d’Argento DOC 2020), three titles that succeeded in describing with visionary power and with the voice of its protagonist, the journey of a man whose knowledge and multifaceted career embraced centuries of knowledge, cultures, perspectives.

These works are a combination of recollections, documentation and confession, they are precious testimonies that turn into a profound investigation of the human soul and of the most obscure mysteries that have always fascinated and frightened mankind, in the perennial search for the meaning and sense of life.
