THE MAN WHO WILL COME

DIRECTOR: Giorgio Diritti - ITALY

Winner of the Jury Prize at the Rome Film Festival and this year’s David de Donatello (Italian Oscar) Award for Best Film, Diritti’s film is a moving anti-war parable. In the fall of 1944, the German army committed an atrocity of Italian genocide known as the Massacre of Marzabotto—slaughtering almost 800 Italian peasants near Bologna, many women, children, and the elderly. Diritti explores the events that led to this act through the eyes of an eight-year-old peasant girl and her family, including the fateful decision by their community to aid the partisans fighting the occupying Fascist forces. Diritti, who worked with Italian director Ermanno Olmi early in his career, recalls Olmi’s evocative celebration of common people and the beauty of the land that sustains them. (117 mins.)

Selected Filmography: The Wind Blows Round (05).

In Italian, German, and Latin.

Sponsored by the Italian Trade Commission and the Italian Film Commission.
