2014, Rai Com, 75 min, Italy, Dir: Gabriele Salvatores

Like its 2011 predecessor, LIFE IN A DAY, this documentary distills hundreds of YouTube videos shot during a 24-hour period to capture the rhythms and occurrences of a typical day. Here the focus is on Saturday, October 26, 2013 in Italy, and the footage ranges from the mundane to the magical, with plenty of striking Italian scenery (as in the eruption of Mount Etna). Executive produced by Ridley Scott. In Italian with English subtitles.

2013, Film Movement, 110 min, Italy, Dir: Paolo Virzì

Produced by Indiana Production, Coproduced by Manny Films (FR); with Rai Cinema and Motorino Amaranto. Director Paolo Virzì relocates Stephen Amidon's novel from Connecticut to Northern Italy for this stylish neo-noir social critique, winner of seven David di Donatello Awards including Best Film, Screenplay (Pasquale Bruni), Leading Actress (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), Supporting Actress (Valeria Golino) and Supporting Actor (Fabrizio Gifuni). Two families - the rich Bernaschis and the middle-class Rovellis - are tied together by an accident on the road in a dramatic night. "A chic thriller! A top-flight cast gives the character-driven drama depth and conviction." - Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter. In Italian with English subtitles.
