Finding its most natural location, the film will finally reach its perfect audience, in a unique event to be held between May 15th and July 4th 2017.
Directed by Giovanni Troilo and produced by Andrea Patierno and Beatrice Bulgari, in collaboration with Sky ARTE HD, RAI Cinema and Lia Rumma, the film premiered at Rome’s International Film Festival. Now the distribution process is completed with a small revolutionary element: besides the international distribution and the traditional presence in Festivals and in TV channels, the film will finally be screened in art museums.
Director and producers have worked for years in collaboration with the greatest artists and gallerists with the purpose of creating art films which become “works of art”. A revolutionary process that allows a deeper comprehension of the artist’s work, now also available to its most natural audience: the one crowding museums all over the world.
The film is in English, without Greek subtitles.
