PADRENOSTRO [OUR FATHER]
DRAMA | ITALY | 2020 | 120 MIN | 18+ | Italian with English subtitles | One Screening Only.
Pierfrancesco Favino, Barbara Ronchi, Mattia Garaci, Francesco Gheghi.
Rome, 1976. Valerio (Mattia Garaci) is ten years old and has a vivid imagination. When he witnesses, together with his mother Gina (Barbara Ronchi, Feel Your Memories IFF20), the attack on his father Alfonso (Pierfrancesco Favino in his Venice Film Festival Best Actor-winning role, The Traitor IFF20) by a terrorist group, his childhood is turned upside down.
From that moment, fear and a sense of vulnerability leave a dramatic mark on the feelings of the whole family. But it is in those difficult days that Valerio gets to know Christian (Francesco Gheghi), a boy not much older than him. Solitary, rebellious and bold, he seems to have appeared out of nowhere. Their encounter in a summer full of discoveries will change their lives forever.
The social turmoil of Italy’s ‘Years of Lead’ are at the heart of writer-director Claudio Noce’s semiautobiographical third feature Padrenostro, a personal story inspired by his own family trauma that views the harsh adult world from a child’s perspective.
