"What You Gonna Do When the World's on Fire?"
In the main competition, "What You Gonna Do When the World's on Fire?," was supported by ARRI’s International Support Program and serviced by ARRI Rental and postproduced by ARRI Media. This film was awarded the Segnalazione Cinema for UNICEF at the festival. Director Roberto Minervini, spoke to ARRI about his experiences on the film. “I struggled for years to find the right medium...we finally found this partnership with ARRI and its ISP program. Diego Romero (the DP) recommended that we test the AMIRA; he was sure it would serve the purpose of our film.” He continued, “the AMIRA gave us quality, portability, durability, and performance in low light conditions.”
Director of photography on "What You Gonna Do When the World's on Fire?," Diego Romero, commented, “Using the ARRI AMIRA for this movie was one the best decision I ever took in my career as cinematographer. I knew that there were no film negatives in the market right now capable of delivering the results that I achieved with the AMIRA.” Romero continued, “Since we were shooting handheld, the AMIRA allowed us to shoot long takes. The lightness of the camera, its ergonomics (it adjusts incredibly well to the shoulder), the integrated NDs (allowing us to work very fast), and the quality of the sensor are unique elements that a filmmaker cannot find in any other camera nowadays.”
