CONTROCORRENTE

CLAUDIA CAROTENUTO, DANIELE GIUSTOZZI | 2019 | ITALIA | 90'

One camera, thirty shooting days, 6000 kilometers.

Controcorrente is not just a documentary, is an environmentalist on-the-road adventure, financed through crowdfunding, on the state of Italian water. The authors are two roman guys, Claudia Carotenuto, a 25 years old journalist, and Daniele Giustozzi, a 26 years old environmental economist; they crossed the italian peninsula on a hybrid car with the aim of investigating the environmental, economic, social, political, historical and religious aspects of water in Italy. Controcorrente offers a different view on a hidden Italy, a view that is free from every constraints. It talks about the environment, but also about women and men who are an integral and active part of it.

This movie competes for the Senni Award.
