Special Events

Special events out of competition this year include the romantic road movie by Giorgia Farina, starring Jasmine TrincaClive Owen and Irène Jacob (Romantic Guide to Lost Places); a bizarre, surreal tour de-force by the duo Flavia Mastrella and Antonio RezzaSamp; dance-hall punk courtesy of the Extraliscio band, a sort of Leningrad Cowboys from Ferrara/Romagna, as told by Elisabetta Sgarbi (Extraliscio-Punk da balera); and The New Gospel, in which the famous Swiss playwright and director Milo Rau does the Gospels as the passion play of an entire civilization.
