“Golem”, the title chosen by director Louis Nero for his first movie, evokes esoteric visions. Alchemical legends, mysteries about the Jewish Kabbalah and the legendary film “Der Golem” Wegener. The magic triangle of cities, Turin, Prague and Lyon, are the scenery for the movie dedicated to the Golem’s figure. In the night, the legendary automaton statue, inspired by the magical power of words, wanders searching his creator. The paths intersect and overlap on many levels. The traditional narrative development allows for a hypertext made up of fragments, kaleidoscopic emotions and feelings. Nero creates a fascinating forest of cultural influences, symbols, expressionistic shadows; a linguistic and narrative experiments that give life to a work engaging, stimulating and full of references to an intermittent stream of rare emotional power’s images.
This project consisted on a tour of people in 27 Italian cities finalized in the divulgation of an important message: “consciousness is equal to cohabitation”. This enterprise had grown up from the meeting of two important intents: the first one within cinematographical and linguistical, the second one within social and cultural. The cinematographical-linguistical circle borns from the divulgation of a full-length film called “Golem”, realized and produced by the “L’Altrofilm” and by several people from the area of European culture as Moni Ovadia and Gianni Milano. Starting from this point, it came out the idea of making a tour around Italy with a caravan showing “Golem by Louis Nero”. Otherwise the social-cultural area had as purpose to spread out the idea of cohabitation between different cultural realities which have to live in the same territory. This cultural project came out from the interaction of two corporations that usually operates in different realities. The italian Jewish Community, Torino’s Jewish Community, many Onlus associations, Sandra Lischi, professor in Pisa’s University, an essai’s cinema in every city we will be into, different local associations as cultural councilors, those universital’s realities involved and interested, the Academy of fine arts in Torino with Lorenzo Taiuti, the Academy of fine Arts in Roma, Torino’s and Bologna’s Dams. The movie was presented by some of the biggest italian critics-artists-professors like Paolo Puppa, Aldo Zargani, Emilio Iona, Franco Prono, Marco Maria Gazzano, Moni Ovadia, Shaul Massi, etc.
