Alice Rohrwacher (Happy As Lazzaro), Pietro Marcello (Martin Eden), and Francesco Munzi (Black Souls), three of the most interesting voices in contemporary Italian filmmaking, pool their talent in this captivating collective work, with a self-assured nod to the film Comizi d’amore (Love Meetings) by Pier Paolo Pasolini (1964). In their travels across Italy, the filmmakers hear from a diverse range of young people, resulting in a snapshot of a generation for whom hope is always marred with uncertainty. Disarmingly simple and strikingly effective, this documentary captures the spirit of a troubled time, in which the global pandemic throws doubt on the future. (RIDM)
