Fluida is selected for the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2024!

08 January 2024

This experimental documentary is made by filmmaker Ugo Petronin, and includes a collaboration with Stijn Mouton and filming at ERIBA.


“ A flatworm shapeshifts as the fragmented verses of Dutch river poet Dirk Smits murmur myths of the Rotte River. Departing from a droplet of the river, this cinematic dive slowly connects with the depths of human-water relationships. By blending microscopic cinematography with poetry and molecular biology, the film playfully confuses themes of regeneration, ecological destruction, and gender representation. While serving as an ode to the symbiotic relationship between water and imagination, “Ninfa Fluida” ultimately emerges as an initial stride towards questioning deeply rooted behaviours, ethics, and ecological imaginaries.”
