Alessio Rigo de Righi and Matteo Zoppis, Il Solengo, 2015

Open City Documentary Festival: Il Solengo + Q&A with director

23 Jun 2016

UK premiere

There is a Q&A with the directors following the screening

There is a screening of short film Touched by Murder before the main feature.

In a hunting cabin, a group of elderly local men recall the life of Mario “de’ Marcella,” a man who for over 60 years lived a life of seclusion in a tufa cave. The hunters, who would occasionally encounter him out in the wilderness, refer to him as “il Solengo,” like the male boar cut off from the herd. No one knows for sure what caused this curt and eccentric man to lead such a solitary existence, but the hunters' elaborate and often conflicting stories paint a vivid portrait of this enigmatic local legend, all set against a backdrop of the stunning Italian countryside.
