About da Palmer Film

Da Palmer Film is a small production company, located in South Tyrol in the north of Italy.

It was founded in 2001 as Blue Star Film and changed its name to Da Palmer Film in 2005, as Blue Star Film became an independent company in Munich, Germany. Both companies are in close cooperation.

Da Palmer Film produces mainly documentaries, short and feature length fiction films, or collaborates with other production companies mainly in the camera department.

As for production equipment, an editing suite (Final Cut Pro Studio, Deck Link Extreme), DV cameras (JVC GY-DV 700 WEcl, Canon XL1) and super16mm cameras (AATON Ltr 7, BOLEX SBM, BOLEX H16reflex with underwater housing) are available.

H€IMAT
(2003) 

 
heimatposter

South Tyrol, benificiary of financial aid until the late eighties, has long outdistanced its formerly rich neighbours.
The economy is flourishing, unemployment is low, the prosperity ubiquitous. In only a few years the northernmost region of Italy
has become one of the richest in Europe.What sounds like a fairy tale in reality comes at a price.
South Tyrol has become a land of speculation, where the highest offer gets the bid.
Nature is marketed recklessly, the Alps are overrun by tourism.
Tradition and ancient customs degenerate into mere entertainment, turning the land into an alpine Disneyland.
H€IMAT is a film which has its starting point in South Tyrol, but South Tyrol is only exemplary for many regions.
What is happening here is happening in similar ways all over Europe.
The region is ruled by power and money, and politicians often find themselves unable to counter this trend.

CIANCI GATTI
(2001) 
 
 
Cianci Gatti, aka “The Artist on the Mouth Organ”, was born in Innsbruck in 1920.
He was already a gifted cabaret artist and musician during his school days, until World War II interrupted his career.
Under the accusation of having collaborated with the partisans, he was brought to the concentration camp in Reschen Street in Bozen in 1943.
After the War he resumed his artistic activities, on radio as well as on stage.
Then his unique talent on the mouth organ was discovered, winning him international fame in the 1950ies and 60ies.
At the end of the 1970ies he left the stage to study Italian Literature, working later as a teacher until his retirement.
The film Cianci Gatti  gives insight into this man's complex and interesting life.
For this film Cianci returned to the stage after an absence of over 20 years.
