From Adrian Wootton, CEO Film London and Founder Director, Shots in the Dark:
With the generous support of the UK distribution company Modern Films that is releasing The Traitor in cinemas next month, Producer Simone Gattone and the brilliant, resourceful team at Broadway itself we are able to bring you for one night only a free Shots in The Dark online live event featuring Marco Bellochio, some of the cast from The Traitor and his production team to talk to me about his film career and especially this fantastic film. And there is the opportunity for you to submit questions during the event via me to him.
This event will be live on Facebook on Friday 26 June from 6.30PM. RSVP to this event.
Afterward you also have the offer to rent an exclusive preview of The Traitor and also Marco’s classic debut Fists in the Pocket.
As the Founder Director of Shots in the Dark nearly three decades ago I was delighted to be asked back to help out as Broadway decided to end the Festival’s long hibernation a couple of years ago, and I was particularly excited for this year as it was also coinciding with the celebrations commemorating the 30th anniversary of Broadway opening its doors (something of course very proud and pleased to have been more than slightly involved with too!). Indeed it looked like being a bumper edition of the relaunched Festival and we had some very special guests already agreed to come, one of whom as our International Guest of Honour the legendary Italian director Marco Bellocchio with his latest marvelous masterpiece The Traitor an epic gangster tale based on the true story of a mafia boss who turned informer.
I am a huge admirer of Marco from his legendary debut 1964 feature Fists in the Pocket, through classics like Good Morning Night, My Grandmother's Smile, The Wedding Director and Vincere and I regularly screen his work at the BFI London Film Festival and even welcomed him in 2018 to London for the first-ever comprehensive retrospective of his work, in which I also had the great pleasure of curating.
I am so pleased we can bring this very special event to you the loyal Broadway and Shots Audiences and fly the flag for this wonderful venue.
