Nicola Ragone's New Film to Premiere at the Bari International Film Festival

Lucano filmmaker Nicola Ragone will present his latest film Urli e risvegli at the Bari International Film Festival. 

Urli e risvegli is a portrait of Carmine Donnola, a bearded and silent man with wide eyes full of life lived. As a young man he wanted to be an actor, but no one ever believed in his talent. Today he is in his 60's and lives in his hometown of Grassano, a small town in Basilicata. Though travel notes between ancestral places among the infinite landscapes of Lucania, Ragone takes us on an intimate adventure full of paradoxical encounters and grotesque characters that make up the fresco of a mythical civilization in conflict with modernity.
