DIRECTOR: PIETRO MARCELLO, FRANCESCO MUNZI, ALICE ROHRWACHER

The work of a triumvirate of Italian cinema’s leading lights—Marcello (Martin Eden), Munzi (Black Souls), and Rohrwacher (Happy as Lazzaro)—Futura is a unique collective work, comprised of a series of interviews with boys and girls in their late teens collected during a series of journey across Italy, taken before and after pandemic and lockdown. Asked to describe their hopes and fears about the future in an unsettled world, and in a country where jobs are scarce, the film’s articulate, intelligent, often witty young subjects reveal a shared disillusionment, an uncertainty as to if there will be a future at all. What emerges is a poignant picture of the precarity of youth facing incredible new pressures, but also of youth’s extraordinary resilience—a work of intermingled pessimism and possibility.
