PUGLIA/At Hot Docs against petroleum

“Vento di soave”, the documentary by the director and sociologist from Puglia, Corrado Punzi, has been selected for competition at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto, the most influential documentary festival in North America, scheduled to be held in the Canadian city this year from 26th April to 6th May.

The film, already presented at the 35th Torino Film Festival with an excellent response (in the “Italiana.Doc” section), tells three stories of stubborn but contradictory opposition to the “giants” of the industrial area of Brindisi: the petrochemical company, Eni, and the Enel coal power plant located in Cerano.
The portrayal of the progress made is countered by the socio-sanitary damage caused within a region dedicated to agriculture.
Produced by Davide Barletti’s Fluid Produzioni and the theatrical collective Muud Film (Mattia Soranzo, Mattia Epifani and Corrado Punzi), “Vento di soave” received funding from the Regional Film Fund of the Puglia Region and the Apulia Film Commission.
