EXCLUSIVE: Here’s first footage from Padrenostro, Claudio Noce’s Italian drama that screens in Venice this week.
Starring Pierfrancesco Favino and set in 1976, the film follows a ten-year-old boy with a vivid imagination whose life falls apart when he witnesses a group of terrorists attempting to take his father’s life. The impact on the family is dramatic, and everybody is overwhelmed with feelings of fear and vulnerability when a new boy arrives on the scene. Only a little older than Valerio, Christian is a cheeky, solitary rebel, who will bring novelty and change not only to that summer but to their whole lives.
Claudio Noce and Enrico Audenino wrote the screenplay. Producers are Andrea Calbucci, Pierfrancesco Favino and Maurizio Piazza.
The film has its world premiere in Venice Film Festival’s Competition program tomorrow (August 4).
