DIRECTOR: Matteo Garrone - Italy

"From Roberto Saviano's bestselling 2006 book about the international influence of the Italian organized crime empire known as the Camorra, Garrone has made an electrifying mob mobie set in Naples that will impress an unnerve even the most demanding aficionados of the genre.  In this deft interweaving of five stories, the Camorra's reach extends from the heights of haute couture to the depths of toxic waste, and Garrone coolly observes all the attendant brutality.  The great Neapolitan director and actor Toni Servillo heads a strong cast as a lethally smooth businessman in a sharp suit who specialize in the illegal dumping of corporate poisons.  Tony Soprano and his crew would run in terror." --New York Film Festival.  Winner of the Cannes Film Festival's Grand Prize and this year's Italian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. 

Selected Filmography: Terra Di Mezzo (96), Guests (98), Roman Summer (00), The Embalmer (02), First Love (04).

Cultural Partner: Italian Cultural Institute, San Francisco.
