Approdi is a place facing the sea, where you can stop during your journey. A landing place. Over the years, we ourselves have felt the need for this place. So refresh yourself here and then leave again with new energy to go somewhere else.

Today more than ever, we need perspectives that can question the real and question our own realities. To see the world means to know it, to touch it, and to understand it. Understanding how we represent ourselves and the world around us through images can improve our insight into who we are and how we want to be.

To make a different and authentic kind of cinema, we believe that it is essential for people to meet each other, to create a community of gazes that can look at and decode the world together, everyone in their unique way. To feel less alone, to feel less lonely.
