Sacro GRA · Pantalla Pavelló 2018

Sacro GRA (IT, 2013, 93’). A film by Gianfranco Rosi, presented by Neus Ballús, director, scriptwriter and media producer.

Fellini defined the Grande Raccordo Anulare (GRA), the 70km-highway that surrounds Rome, as “a ring of Saturn” in his film Roma. In that long strip of asphalt, which hides many possible stories and futures, we discover characters and places like the palace of a prince in the Via Boccea, the cabin of an eel farmer in the Tevere or the gardens that a botanist visits in search of parasites. A concrete highway and eccentric and picturesque characters, who seem to belong to an irretrievable past of the city, while inhabiting an urban edge, giving it a strangely urban-pastoral effect.

“Il GRA, questo fiume di traffico in eterno movimento e chi lo abita, è una realtà che reclama di essere vista, di essere pensata. Le sue contraddizioni lasciano a bocca aperta: un frate francescano sulla corsia d’emergenza che fotografa il cielo; greggi di pecore al pascolo a pochi metri da auto che sfrecciano a 120 Km all’ora… Mondi in movimento che si intersecano, ignari gli uni degli altri.”
Gianfranco Rosi, Sacro GRA
