the first European festival on creativity

2014 Programme

Event #12

Giorgio Diritti

The Discovery of the Birth of a Film

Beginning with Il vento fa il suo giro and by way of L’uomo che verrà, Giorgio Diritti reflects on what drove him to make his most recent film starring Jasmine Trinca, Un giorno devi andare. The discovery of the Amazon thanks to the making of a documentary becomes the start of a journey, not just through the spectacular beauty of nature, the simplicity and kindness of the natives, the infinite expansion of time, but also through a search within oneself, in search of a spirituality that encourages us to wonder about the role of human beings and investigate the meaning of the “other”. An outer and inner voyage that is at the same time an escape and rebirth from pain, and that brings with it new encounters, sharing and hope.


Giorgio Diritti

is a filmmaker, scriptwriter and a film editor. He began by collaborating with Pupi Avati, and has since directed documentaries, short films and television programmes. His debut budget movie, Il vento fa il suo giro (2005), became a national talking point, entering more than sixty film festivals across the world, and winning some thirty prizes. His second movie, L’uomo che verrà, presented in 2009 at the Rome International Film Festival, won the David di Donatello prize, among others. Un giorno devi andare, filmed in Brazil and Trentino, and presented at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, stars Jasmine Trinca, winner of the Nastro d’argento in Venice as Best Actress. Diritti’s first novel, Noi due, is scheduled for publication in late August by Rizzoli.
