This year’s IDFA offered a retrospective on the striking body of work of the Italian master, the festival’s guest of honour, Gianfranco Rosi.
Notturno is observational cinema at in its most provocative and poetic form. A film doesn’t need any words when the images are so strong.
Drift cautiously with Fire at Sea, though, and one will appreciate the depth of Rosi’s waters.
Director Ginafranco Rosi embraces the convoluted system and drives Sacro GRA in circles as he meditates upon a world in transition.
