UNBELIEVERS OVERVIEW

A journey that began at the Pesaro Film Festival, passed through cinemas,
and destined to remain as a generational cult.

A FILM THAT CONTINUES TO GROW DOWNHILL LIKE A SMALL SNOWBALL THAT BECOMES AN AVALANCHE

A film shot in just 12 nights, spread across three blocks over eight months, between September 2020 and June 2021. A crew armed with an Arri 416 and around fifty rolls of Kodak 16mm film wandering the streets, metros, airports, and hotels of Rome. A great passion for independent cinema and a desire to discover new methods of artistic cinematographic production. ‘I Don’t Believe in Anything’ has already been hailed as a generational cult classic.

DISTRIBUTED IN DCP (Digital Cinema Package) AND ON 35MM FILM

Presented at the Pesaro Film Festival in June 2023, the film was showcased at various other Italian festivals until its theatrical release on September 28 of the same year. Completely self-distributed by Dationa and Flickmates, the theatrical tour lasted eight months, with the director and cast meeting the audience. At each event, it was possible to purchase the film’s merchandise at a pop-up store in the cinema, which saw great success in sales. The tour will conclude in May 2024, with the screening of the film on Kodak 35mm film in major Italian cities.
