GIFFONI EXPERIENCE 2014 - 18.27 July

Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2014


Samuele’s job is to kill chickens. In his early thirties, he is the only Italian working in that sector of a huge food company. Every day, eight hours a day. And he hates immigrants. At the same time he desperately needs the job. He will do whatever it takes to keep the only important thing in his life close to him: his six year old son Elvis. When a young Senegalese colleague saves his life something breaks in him. Because to be in debt to someone he hates is the worst thing that could happen to him.

In 2010 he wins a scholarship that allows him to attend “Scuola Holden” for the third year. He writes his first feature film PLAYGROUND, much appreciated by his tutor, the writer Alessandro Baricco, still co-operating with Adriano in financing the film. In 2011 Adriano moves to Rome and he is selected as a screenwriter at NCN LAB 2011 organized by Casa del Cinema and he receives a special mention for the screenwriting of the short film A VUOTO. He starts to co-operate with DIERO Productions shooting the short-film PUDDLES and writing his second feature film VEDERSI LE OSSA. In 2012 he shoots in just 48 hours the short-film ABBIAMO TUTTA LA NOTTE that wins different prizes at the “Tutto in 48 ore” competition produced by RAI 5 (best short-film, best direction, best cinematography and best screenwriting) and represents Italy at 48 Hours Film Festival in Los Angeles. In 2013 he shots the short-films PIUME and CHEWING-GUM.
