  • The 64th edition of the David di Donatello, Italy’s Academy Awards, saw the triumph of Matteo Garrone’s “Dogman”, which took home 9 awards. The Netflix film “Sulla Mia Pelle”, a documentary about Stefano Cucchi, the young roman man who died under custody in 2009, likely as a consequence of police brutality, also fared well, winning 4 prizes including Best Male Actor for Alessandro Borghi.
  • The 67th Cannes Film Festival has come to an end and among the winners we find an Italian director: Alice Rohrwacher won the Grand Prix prize, the second most prestigious award, for her film The Wonders (Le Meraviglie). The film has been labled as a gentle and textured coming-of-age story “inspired by the director’s own childhood in the countryside between Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany.” (The Telegraph)
