Giulio Andreotti Cinema close-up) by Tatti Sanguineti and to the documentary by Giancarlo Soldi Nessuno siamo perfetti (lit. Nobody’s Perfect), about the creator of Dylan Dog, Tiziano Sclavi.
Finally, a Special Nastri d’Argento goes to Marco Spagnoli creator of about ten movies in five years, including his most recent, in 2014, about Sophia Loren, Walt Disney in Italia and especially about Enrico Lucherini: Ne ho fatte di tutti i colori.
A group mention for the project about ‘the birthday’ of the Luce Insitute 9x10 Novanta, made, rightly, by nine young directors who drew images and suggestions from afar.
Finally the award that distinguished Qualcosa di noi by Wilma Labate with a prize to the best documentary actor of the year, Jana, 46 years old, a prostitute since she was 11, who on the hills of Sasso Marconi, filmed by Labate, gives her lessons about sexuality, starting with money and the body, to twelve students from a writing school.
The finalists this year were chosen by journalists from the SNGCI among the documentaries – over 50 movies, entered as 50% in the selection that came before the ‘five nominees’– screened at the biggest festivals (then released in cinemas or on DVD, or broadcast on a TV network) between 1st January and 31 December 2014.
