VISTA MARE is about the people we spend our holidays with, year after year, without even knowing it. A journey behind the scenes of the adriatic mass tourism and an insight into the working and day-by-day life of those who live within and of the industry.

Locarno 23: VISTA MARE at Semaine de la Critique
Julia Gutweniger and Florian Kofler’s new film VISTA MARE – perspicacious observations on those who work for those who crowd the Italian beaches for a short summer break – will celebrate its world premiere at the Locarno Semaine de la Critique (4-11 August)
Two Austrian projects – CALM by Sara Fattahi, MILA / MARIJA by Andrina Mračnikar – are selected by Alliance 4 Development.
«What remains is the sea.»
A view of the sea represents a longing – often to recuperate from a whole year of hard work and everyday stress. To provide some people with this brief break on the beach in the sun, others have to work hard all summer. In VISTA MARE, Julia Gutweniger and Florian Kofler have created an essay on visible relaxation and invisible activity, focusing on the landscape of Adriatic tourism, which is operated at full throttle for a few summer weeks every year without much regard for resources.
