OPENING! The Adventures of Gigi the Law / Gigi la legge
Alessandro Comodin, Italy, France, 2022, 102'
Gigi is a charismatic, dedicated policeman in a sleepy rural town in Friuli, Italy. When an unexplained suicide happens, he begins to monitor the life of his fellow townspeople even more attentively… This witty and genuinely intimate portrait of a man closely connected with his surroundings evasively moves between documentary and fiction, between the real and fantasy. Special Jury Prize at the 2022 Locarno Film Festival.
With introduction by the main protagonist of the film, Pier Luigi Mecchia, and video introduction by the director and screenwriter Alessandro Comodin.
