“A slimmer line-up which drills down deeper, focusing on puberty, father-son relationships, rites of passage and the search for identity”. This is how the festival’s long-term artistic director Gianluca Giannelli, alongside Fabia Bettini, presented the latest edition of Alice nella Città, the autonomous section for younger generations which will unfold in parallel with Rome Film Fest between 13 and 23 October, and which will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with a very special guest: “gladiator” Russell Crowe. The New Zealand actor is set to present a world premiere (in co-production with Rome Film Fest) of his second directorial effort Poker Face in the Alice sidebar, as well as accepting a Special Prize here and taking part in a masterclass open to film schools and the general public.
