🇮🇹 “Tredici anni fa ho iniziato a lavorare con The Actors' Gang Theater con l’obiettivo di mettere a punto un programma riabilitativo nelle prigioni di Stato della California. Abbiamo chiesto di poter entrare in contatto con le realtà carcerarie più dure e difficili, che ogni classe fosse interrazziale e che le bande rivali si incontrassero nella stessa stanza. All’interno di queste classi abbiamo scoperto cose sorprendenti e di grande umanità, un’esperienza che ha segnato tutti noi, una storia che sentivo di dover raccontare.”
Così si esprime il regista Tim Robbins parlando del suo Film Documentario 45 seconds of Laughter presentato fuori concorso alla 76° mostra del cinema di Venezia.
Il titolo riprende l’esercizio finale che viene proposto nella classe: 45 secondi di risate, anche se finte forzate ed immotivate liberano le endorfine producendo un effetto benefico su umore e salute.
Il film è prodotto da Havoc Docs.

We asked for the difficult ones, we asked that every class be racially mixed, that rival gangs meet in the same room. We discovered something surprising and profoundly human in those classrooms, an experience that changed all of us, and a story that I felt needed to be told.”
These are the words of director Tim Robbins as he talks about his Documentary Film “45 seconds of Laughter” presented out of competition at the 76th Venice Film Festival.
The title refers to the final exercise which the class is involved in: 45 seconds of laughter, even if it is fake, forced and for no reason, produce endorphins which have a beneficial effect on mood and health. The film is produced by Havoc Docs.

Get your tickets now for the first production of our 2019/20 season — 1984!
Winston Smith hates his job. He works in the Ministry of Information rewriting history to serve the interests of the powerful. Winston’s soul is stirring with rebellion and his heart alive with love. Welcome to a world of no privacy, where electronic screens create paranoia, divisiveness and hatred for the ‘other’, where the state manufactures consent for perpetual war, where truth is manipulated, and love itself is an act of rebellion.
