Written and directed by Renzo Carbonera, the film arrives in theaters on February 9th. Here is trailer and plot of Pluto.
The news that according to the Doomsday Clock, the Doomsday clock, in this 2023 there are just 90 seconds left until the Apocalypse. This is an entirely human calculation, obviously symbolic, but calculated by scientists, experts, think tanks and public decision-makers consulted by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientist, for an initiative promoted by the University of Chicago back in 1947.
Never before have global threats (which are those of wars, but also of the climate crisis) brought the hands of the Doomsday Clock so close to the stroke of that midnight which would mean the end.
Curious, therefore, that the trailer for a film titled has arrived in these very hours Plutoarriving in theaters Feb. 9and which speaks precisely of the anxiety related to the end of the world for a possible nuclear catastrophe.
Interpreted by Andrew Pennacchithe Venetian actor known to the general public for the television character of Poiana, but an interpreter of cinema and theater of great effectiveness and intensity, Pluto is written and directed by Renzo Carbonera, and “uses the language of fiction to narrate probable and strict correspondence with the news, right now that geopolitical tensions have exploded again and that the atomic threat has once again become a current topic”.
Pluto is a Kiné Società Cooperativa production with Rai Cinema in collaboration with EIE FILM, and is distributed by Open DDB.
A man finds refuge in the mountains, among some remains of the various world wars fought over the last 100 years. Taking small steps into his life, and into his past, we descend with him into a spiral of memories, suggestions, reality and madness. Imagination becomes hallucination and this man’s life a metaphor for the sword of Damocles that we have decided to put on our heads. Will we evolve from the nuclear anthropocene or will we go extinct with it?
Franco “Chief” Carling served on military missions all over the world, was injured in an accident and lost loved ones due to work that took him to numerous American bases in Italy and Europe, always in the company of bomb.
Since the end of the Cold War its reference points have disappeared, the enemy is no longer so easy to identify and the atomic risk has lost its strongest controller, the deterrence that arose from the world divided into blocks. Now the bomb has become his obsession, his torment and his only reason for living.
