DIAZ: DON'T CLEAN UP THIS BLOOD
DIAZ
2012, Fandango Portobello, 120 min, Italy, Dir: Daniele Vicari

When a slew of hardboiled cops raid the Diaz school, looking for a ring of international anarchist thugs but finding hundreds of mostly peaceful protestors sleeping, the police brutality reaches a fever pitch. Based on real events in Genoa in 2001, Daniele Vicari's hard-hitting procedural exposé stars Claudio Santamaria as Max, one of the film's few good cops, Elio Germano as an unlucky journalist, Jennifer Ulrich as a German demonstrator submitted to particularly heinous police treatment, and Davide Iacopini as the organizer of the G8 Summit. An official selection at the 2012 Berlin and Karlovy Vary international film festivals. In Italian with English subtitles.
