Three of Italy’s most exciting filmmakers travel the country, interviewing a cross-section of their nation’s youth to discover their hopes, dreams, and fears for the future.

STREAMING (NOV 4–11)

Following in the footsteps of a long line of documentarians, a collective of three of Italy’s premiere filmmakers—Pietro Marcello (Martin Eden), Francesco Munzi (Black Souls), and Alice Rohrwacher (Happy as Lazzaro)—travel the country, interviewing 15-20 year olds against the backdrop of Italy’s natural and architectural wonders. Discussing everything from politics to technology to the oncoming weather crisis, each filmmaker brings their distinct approach and curiosity to capture the urgency, intelligence, and expressiveness of the next Italian generation.

“Pietro Marcello, Francesco Munzi, and Alice Rohrwacher’s Futura is attuned to the dreams and anxieties of people on the brink of adulthood.”—Slant
