A glass in free fall. Have you ever thought if it is possible to calculate into how many pieces it can break into? After numerous experiments, a team of researchers succeeds in doing just this apparently impossible task. Attracted to their experiment, a mysterious professor invites the scientists in his isolated mansion to know more about their studies. However, when they arrive, they are not greeted by their host but they are faced with a strange model of the mansion, in which some absolutely normal but incredible actions are acted. The researchers will soon understand to be involved in a new experiment in which they’ll have to play a very different role than usual: that of the glass in free fall.

Giordano Giulivi

Giordano Giulivi was born in Rome on August 17, 1974.After his education in humanities, his passion for audiovisual techniques led him to work as an editor at Italian National Television. Always attracted by the imaginary and the mysterious, interpreted in a philosophical and scientific way, as shown by his passion for astronomy, he found in making movies his mean of expression, conceiving and telling stories that reflect his interests and fantasies. He has therefore dedicated himself to the cinema taking care of all the aspects related to the realization of a film, seen as a unitary and integrated activity, including the creation of the story, writing the script down to the smallest details, directing and final editing.
He has devoted time and attention to this passion, with a continuous process of training and learning by doing that has led him to the management of also innovative techniques, applied with accuracy, method and perseverance that ensure the high quality of the product, despite the limited resources available. One example is the scenery of his films, conceived and made by himself, by manually building some elements, and using more and more systematically computer tools, such as Computer Graphics, in a coherent way with the expressive needs of his films. Giordano is an independent director, screenwriter of his films and co-producer of the same.
