DOGMAN

Dubbed an “urban Western,” Dogman by Matteo Garrone takes place in an Italian suburb somewhere between metropolis and wild nature. Marcello (Marcello Fonte), a small and gentle dog groomer, finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of subjugation with Simone (Edoardo Pesce), a former violent boxer who terrorizes the entire neighborhood. In an effort to reaffirm his dignity, Marcello will submit to an unexpected act of vengeance.

Nominated to the Palme d'Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and to six Silver Ribbon Awards in Italy, Dogman confirms Matteo Garrone as one of Italy’s most acclaimed filmmakers.

MATTEO GARRONE

Born in Rome in 1968, Matteo Garrone graduated from the Liceo Artistico in 1986; after working as a camera assistant, he decided to devote himself full time to painting. In 1996 he won the Sacher Festival with the short film Silhouette. The following year, with his own production company Archimede, he made his first feature film, Terra di Mezzo (Land in Between), which won the Special Jury Prize and the Cipputi Prize at the Torino Film Festival. In 1998 he shot the documentary Oreste Pipolo, a Wedding Photographer in Naples, and in the same year his second feature film, Ospiti (Guests) was presented at the Venice Film Festival. The film received a Special Mention at the Angers Festival, the Best Film Award at the Valencia Film Festival and the Kodak Award at the Messina Film Festival. His third feature film,  Estate Romana (Roman Summer, 2000), was also shown at the Venice Film Festival. In 2002, with The Embalmer (L’Imbalsamatore), he participated in the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs of the 55th Cannes Film Festival. The film won the David di Donatello for Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor, the Silver Ribbon and the Golden Ciak for Best Editing, the Fellini Prize for Best Producer, Best Production Design, Best Photography, Best Screenplay and Best Distribution, and the Special Jury Prize at the Pasolini Awards. In 2004 his film Primo Amore (First Love) won the Silver Bear for Best Score at the 54th Berlinale. The film also won the David di Donatello and the Nastro d’Argento for Best Score. In 2008 he was for the first time in competition at the Cannes Film Festival with Gomorrah, which won the Grand Jury Prize. The film also won five European Film Awards (Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography), seven David di Donatello, two Silver Ribbons, the Silver Hugo for Best Screenplay at the Chicago Film Festival and received the nomination for Best Foreign Film at the Golden Globe, BAFTA and Césars. Also in 2008, he produced Pranzo di Ferragosto (Mid-August Lunch) by Gianni Di Gregorio, which won the Best First Feature Award at the Venice Film Festival.
