Gianni Di Gregorio's Lontano Lontano (Citizens of the World) premiered at the Torino Film Festival in November and opened in Italy on February 20. The film marks Ennio Fantastichini's last role. The actor passed away on December 1, 2018.
Inspired by conversations which led to the publication of the anthology Stories from the Eternal City, Gregorio cowrote the screenplay and made sure to pay homage to his beloved hometown of Rome. We'll keep you posted on the film's availability in the U.S. Perhaps this one will make it to Open Roads: New Italian Cinema in June!
