The 70th Venice Film Festival – Sacro GRA: interviews with Gianfranco Rosi and Nicolò Bassetti
A documentary in competition. “Sacro GRA” by Gianfranco Rosi is the third Italian film running for the Golden Lion. A documentary that tells the secrets and the stories of the people living around the Roman Grande Raccordo Anulare (Great Ring Road), which is the largest orbital motorway in Italy being almost 70km (42 mi) long. The director travelled for one year to document the lives lived along the GRA. We met him and Nicolò Bassetti, the landscape planner that helped and inspired Rosi.
