Marco Bellocchio’s surprising debut, Fists in the Pocket, was released more than fifty years ago and had a huge impact on Italian cinema“, said Aïnouz. “I am thrilled to collaborate with Efthimis Filippou to revisit this iconic work and create a contemporary parable about the death of the traditional patriarchal family, one that I hope is exciting and provocative in equal measure. Working with such a dynamic cast of actors is a dream come true, they are performers that I have long admired and with whom I am delighted to be able to make this adaptation and deliver it to today’s audience“.
