Releasing at December 3, 2020 in theaters
Notturno is co-produced documentary film directed and written by Gianfranco Rosi. It primiered on Venice Film Festival at September 8, 2020. It was selected as the Italian entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards, but it was not nominated.
Notturno was shot over the past three years along the borders of Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, and Lebanon. A region where tyranny, invasions and terrorism have fed off each other in a vicious circle, to the detriment of the civilian populations. All around signs of violence and destruction: but in the foreground is the humanity that reawakens every day from a nocturne that seems infinite. “Notturno”, a film of light on the darkness of war.
