“The Anarchist Banker” by Giulio Base, directed by him and starring together with Paolo Fosso, selected at the Venice International Film Festival in the “Sconfini” section, won the Persephone Award. The film, produced by Agnus Dei Production in collaboration with Rai Cinema and co-produced by AlberTeam Group and Solaria Film, will be released in autumn thanks to Sun Film Group.

The jury, chaired by Maurizio Costanzo and Francesco Bellomo, awarded the prestigious prize with the following motivation: “A successful director, screenwriter and actor, he has always maintained a constant relationship with cinema, theatre and fiction. The expedient of the camps and counter-fields, the dynamism of the images accompanied by that of the words, give the author the guarantee of freeing him from the danger of filming statically. The film highlights one of the most subtle and intelligent criticisms of the politics and society of the time. It also reminds us that freedom is not a concession, or a good thing, but always a difficult goal, all in an atmosphere worthy of the best Pessoa”.

Francesco Bellomo and Maurizio Costanzo, founders of the Premio Persefone, have decided to award this year the prestigious award also during the Venice International Film Festival. An award to underline the commitment of those who have transformed their work, on stage and on screen, in a concrete value for culture.

The Persefone Award to Giulio Base for “The Anarchist Banker ” was presented on September 7th at 2pm at the Excelsior Hotel Showroom.
