Mexico! Un Cinema Alla Riscossa Editing
Mexico is one of the last independent movie theatres in Italy, and its owner and leader Antonio Sancassani is a standout character. For almost 50 years he led a fight against mainstream film distribution, shining a light on independent, low-budget films that couldn’t have been screened elsewhere, as far as patronizing a unique social phenomenon such as the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” performances. Director Michele Rho, and myself as well, tried to balance the outstanding story of Sancassani with a reflection on the state of cinema today, both in terms of industry and movie theatres.
The resulting documentary hit italians theatres in May 2017.
