Notturno to premiere on Mubi on March 5
Told using footage captured from the borders of Iran, Kurdistan, Syria and Lebanon, the film is a depiction of three turbulent years in the heart of Middle Eastern war zones
Gianfranco Rosi’s new documentary film Notturno will be released on Mubi on March 5 in the UK, Ireland, India, LATAM, and Turkey.
The film, which premiered and won three awards at Venice Film Festival, is Italy's entry for the Academy Awards 2021. It is also nominated for Best International Independent Film at the BIFA awards.
Notturno is a depiction of three turbulent years in the heart of Middle Eastern war zones. Told using footage captured from the borders of Iran, Kurdistan, Syria, and Lebanon, the film depicts the everyday struggles of people attempting to rebuild their lives amongst the devastating effects of civil wars, dictatorships, foreign invasions, and the deadly presence of ISIS.
Rosi’s last film, Fire at Sea, based on the European migrant crisis, was awarded the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival.
