 (lit. Gospel), and will be about refugees. The actor and director gave us a few sneak peak details of his sixth upcoming feature film during a round table organised at the MovieMov Festival in Hanoi, as part of an initiative to bring Italian film to Asia.

"It’s a film I’m putting together around people in transit, waiting to find out if they can stay or to go God knows where. And I’m one of them" declared Delbono to the Asian press. "I’m a traveller, and it’s from that point of view that I build their stories. In Vietnam I’ve come across ideas that cannot be part of my film because here there’s the story of a country, a war. Over the last few days I’ve seen destroyed planes, tanks, the perfect environment for putting together a piece about love, war, racism, fascism, violence, contradiction and segregation, topics we’re deeply connected to".

The release of Vangelo is scheduled for Spring 2016. The film is an international co-production between Italy, with Donatella Palermo’s 13 dicembre, France (Arte), Switzerland with Ventura Film and Belgium with Les Films du Fleuve, the production company of the Dardenne brothers, whilst an Asian producer could also be getting involved in the next few days.
