Super LTD released the trailer for the documentary Notturno, directed by Italian filmmaker Gianfranco Rosi, and recently selected as Italy’s official entry for the Academy Award in the Best International Film category. Gianfranco Rosi follows up his Academy Award®-nominated “Fire at Sea” with this breathtaking masterpiece, the culmination of a three-year cinematic journey through war-torn Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria and Lebanon. The film will be available on Virtual Cinema on January 22, 2021, and available everywhere on January 29, 2021.
Filmed over three years on the borders between Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, and Lebanon, Notturno captures the everyday life that lies behind the continuing tragedy of civil wars, ferocious dictatorships, foreign invasions and the murderous apocalypse of ISIS. Gianfranco Rosi (SACRO GRA, Venice Golden Lion Winner, Fire at Sea, Berlin Golden Bear winner and Oscar® nominee) constructs a sublime cinematic journey through the region finding peace and light within the chaos and despair in the aftermath of war. A mosaic of intimate moments and luminous images, Notturno is a profound and urgent cinematic achievement, from a master of the documentary form.
