Following up on his acclaimed Manuel, Dario Albertini makes a comeback with this intense story shot in 16mm. Presented in the Alice nella città section of the Rome Film Fest, the film stars newcomer Madalina Maria Jekal and Luciano Miele.
Dog Years is a coming-of-age teen comedy directed by Fabio Mollo, starring Aurora Giovinazzo (Freaks Out), Isabella Mottinelli, Federico Cesari and Luca Maria Vannuccini.
The award-winning novel by Donatella Di Pietrantonio (2017) has been adapted into a feature film, the only Italian entry in the Official Selection of this year’s Rome Film Festival.
After a Venice Film Festival full of Italian cinema, the Rome Film Fest too presents a line-up with many local titles. Antonio Monda, Artistic Director of the festival, defines this as “a year of rebirth, but still an exceptional one”
