Coda (“tail”) is a short about what comes after the end. It’s skin and film, it’s 35mm, it’s digital (and numérique); it’s a game, it’s a D.I.Y., it’s a pirate; it’s blind, primitive, punk, criminal; it’s a love song, a wound, a stance against cinema. Coda is unique, it cannot be reproduced without its matrix; it’s out takes, it’s obscene, it’s for all those people who left their sweat and blood on the set, in the laboratories, in the film archives, and in screening rooms. Coda isn’t.
Luis Fulvio (Italy) was born in 1977 near the Mediterranean Sea and he lives in Rome. He followed a classic path of studies and collaborated for years with the film archive of the Fondazione CSC and with Fuori Orario. In 2014, he made Coda, followed by Il futuro di Era in 2016, both of which were presented at the Torino Film Festival.

“A film leader is a length of film attached to the head or tail of a film to assist in threading a projector or telecine. […] This not only includes the countdown, but technical information about the film, including, but not limited to, title, studio, production number, aspect ratio, sound level and mix, reel number and color.”
