    SYNOPSIS
    "Un Piccolo prestigiatore" is the short film starring and written by Wigand Lange, German book author who copes with Parkinson's disease since the age of 50. Revisiting in form of a tale the difficult process of coming to terms with, and eventually accepting, the disease as a part of oneself, the short film tells about a pianist’s bizarre encounter with a malicious elf.

    CONCEPT
    The short fiction film “Un Piccolo Prestigiatore” has been conceived by Ale Corsini for the communication campaign, supported by LIMPE, of the “Seconda Giornata Nazionale della Malattia di Parkinson” (Italian National Information day on Parkinson's disease), to raise awareness on Parkinson’s disease through a short cinematic story.

    Its basic idea was to get away from a strictly scientific perspective that would have put symptoms and the disease itself on the foreground, to instead try and emphasize the subjective experience of coping with the disease and coming to terms with it. The project has focused since the initial research phase and for the writing of the story concept on real life stories of people suffering from Parkinson’s disease, published on the internet and on books. Consistently, it has involved Wigand Lange (actor, dramaturge and author of several autobiographical books on Parkinson’s disease) to write its subject (and play the protagonist’s role). His works are in fact characterized by an extraordinary capability to describe, with exquisite sense of humor, the palette of emotions that make up the experience of coping daily with the disease. Furthermore, his peculiar narrative style, fragmented and "hypertextual", well suited the director's vision.

    This short film is a journey through the different emotions that make up and accompany the personal process of coming to terms with, and eventually accepting, the disease as a part of oneself. As highlighted by real-life stories, in fact, this appears to be the turning point, the change of attitude necessary to leave behind an exhausting and uneven fight to keep living the same lifestyle as before and, instead, move onto discovering one self and a renewed love for life, again.

    PRODUCTION
    Due to the low-budget nature of the project, the film has been shot completely on DSLR (photocameras that shoot video). Due to the health conditions of its author and protagonist Wigand Lange, the film has required several trips to Bayern (Germany), where he lives, for the subject development and for the shooting. The scenes with the young pianist have instead been shot in Italy, where the other main actor Marco Grigoletto lives and works, directing music- and theater-therapy groups for Alzheimer and Parkinson patients.

    What you will see is the result of several months of work (may to november 2010) of the small, international (mainly Italian and German) and young group of people who contributed to the project. A project supported by LIMPE that nevertheless could have never taken its current form had it not encountered the support of many people (among which also famous names of the film sector like Dario Marianelli and Paul Moriarty) and private institutions.
