LA SLITTA
A short movie by Emanuela Ponzano

“The Sled” is a film with a social message and some surreal aspects. It tells of a dysfunctional family in a village in the mountains of southern Italy, with parents who are unable to communicate with their only son. Faced with their indifference he takes refuge in isolation. Along with the realistic narrative, which examines issues of racism and linguistic minorities from a variety of different viewpoints, the sled is an element with more fantastic and symbolic aspects. This means of transport that children use in play has various meanings for our protagonist, as a symbol of communication, sharing and an alternative existence. It thus comes to represent the hope for a better life for a nine-year-old child as well as for all children in search of possibilities for opening up to a new and healthier attitude towards life.

“La slitta” è un film sociale con aspetti surreali. Racconta di una famiglia problematica in un villaggio tra le montagne del nord Italia, nella quale i genitori non sanno comunicare e relazionarsi con l’unico figlio che, di fronte alla loro indifferenza, si rifugia nell’isolamento. Nella storia, assieme alla narrazione realistica, che include il tema del razzismo e delle minoranze linguistiche con vari punti di vista, intendo aggiungere  un aspetto fantastico attraverso una “Slitta”. La slitta, mezzo di trasporto che i bambini usano come un gioco, per il nostro protagonista assume valenze diverse diventando simbolo di speranza, di comunicazione e condivisione; l’alternativa, uno spiraglio di vita migliore per un bambino di nove anni o meglio per tutti i bambini in cerca di nuove possibilità di apertura e di vita.
