#RomaFF14 | “Sin” by Andrei Konchalovsky is the Special Closing Event
The 14th Rome Film Fest closes on Sunday October 27th. At 5 pm in Sala Sinopoli, Sin by Andrei Konchalovsky will be the Special Closing Event. Italy, 1512. Michelangelo is busy on two great projects: he has just finished painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and is at work on the tomb of Pope Julius II della Rovere. With the sudden death of the Pope and the advent of the Medici family in the Vatican, he becomes involved in the long and ruthless conflict between the most powerful families in Italy. Increasingly pressed by his patrons, and accompanied by visions that he cannot distinguish from reality, he is forced to lie and maneuver to try and complete both of his commitments. The film will be presented by Andrei Konchalovsky and Alberto Crespi. At 11:15 am at the MAXXI, the audience is invited to see Sin: backstage.
Rome Film Fest pays tribute to the memory of Andrea Camilleri and Ugo Gregoretti with Ugo & Andrea by Rocco Mortelliti, scheduled for 5:30 pm at the MAXXI. Jokes, quips and memories narrated with irony and participation: these are the ingredients of the dialogue between a giant of fiction, Andrea Camilleri, and a titan of the revolution in the language of television and audiovisual, Ugo Gregoretti, filmed by their respective daughters, Orsetta and Andreina.
At 4 pm, as the last event of the Rebibbia Festival, the prison Auditorium will host an encounter between the President of the Constitutional Court Giorgio Lattanzi and the male and female prisoners during the presentation to the inmates, many of whom were in it, of Viaggio in Italia – La Corte Costituzionale nelle Carceri by Fabio Cavalli, produced by Clipper Media with Rai Cinema.
