Among the various appointments at the Anteo cinema there is also the screening of feature films on Paolo Rossi, Gigi Riva, Maradona and Ibrahimovic
The Football Week is enriched by four films, screened at the Anteo, which tell the story of champions from different eras. And they show different ways of portraying football. All screenings are free to enter.
Walter Veltroni brings Paolo Rossi’s parable to the screen: a work born from a year and a half of collecting archive material, including unpublished audio and private videos. But many testimonies and interviews also contribute to an intimate and personal portrait: from his brother Rossano to Federica Cappelletti, Paolo Rossi’s second wife, up to his former blue teammates Antonio Cabrini, Marco Tardelli and Beppe Bergomi. The goal, explained Veltroni, was to bring out the man behind the champion known to all.
Saturday, 12.30, Excelsior room
Riccardo Milani, the director of Like a cat on the ring road, directs a documentary on the life of Gigi Riva, managing to portray, in the round, a shy champion like the symbol striker of Cagliari, the Italian champion in 1970. Through acted scenes, archive images, testimonials from football players (among them also Zola, Baggio and Barella), friends and acquaintances, Milani brings to the screen the parable of Thunderclap and its link with Sardinia. Paolo Fresu contributed to the soundtrack.
Saturday, 7 pm, Sala President
On the morning of November 25, 2020, when they discover that Maradona is dead, four members of Daniel Pennac’s theater company burst into tears: the French writer, author of the Malaussène cycle, then decides to understand why Diego, the “profane saint”, was so important for people’s lives. Thus a theatrical performance and a documentary were born, directed by the Spaniard Ximo Solano, which recounts Pennac’s creative and surreal investigation into the emotional impact of the Maradona myth.
Saturday, 9.30 pm, Rubino room
Youth and training of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a biopic based on the book I, Ibra, by David Lagercrantz: the film tells Zlatan from his childhood to his entry into football that counts. In the phase between 17 and 23, the attacker has the face of Granit Rushiti, a footballer of Albanian origin who the production had found in a team from the Swedish minor leagues. The director explained that he directed the film focusing “on the anger that Ibra has within him, with the aim of staging his human training linked to that of sport”.
