From Monday February 24th to Wednesday February 26th the 2nd Edition of the Oslo Salento International Film Festival will take place at the Italian Cultural Institute in Oslo. A project that confirms its international prestige and it is characterized by its high-quality contents and an accurate research on contemporary cultural expressions.

SIFF is an intimate, intense and passionate film festival sharing stories from all over the world with the awareness that cinema is one of the most powerful forms of cultural communication and bond between cultures and peoples.
SIFF continues its mission by sharing with the audience the work of independent cinema, Italian and international movies from all over the world, a unique opportunity to watch the real International Independent Cinema.

3 feature films make up this year program. We open with “Michelangelo - Endless” the first ever art film made about the Renaissance creative genius Michelangelo Buonarroti. A must see for the big screen, this astonishing documentary combines the most advanced filming technologies to examine the most famous pieces and portray the immortal personality of one of the greatest artists the world has ever seen.
Here the world of cinema and art meet to paint a portrait of a man who was secretive as well as troubled. Through the immense beauty of his most famous works: the Sistine Chapel ceiling, the Pietà and statue of David, among others, Michelangelo emerges as a master of sharp contrasts and strong passions. The film exposes an artist who proved great courage when displaying his beliefs and ideologies.
Director Emanuele Imbucci’s evocative film is testament to the fact that Michelangelo’s rich and varied works of art made an everlasting mark on the history of art that can never be forgotten.

The docu-film will be introduced by the lead actor, Enrico Lo Verso.
