Primo – Semper Grezzo explores the life of Primo, who in his twenty-year career with Cor Veleno has established himself as one of the greatest voices of Italian rap. Through archive material and the testimonies of those who marked his path, the film develops as an investigation into his artistic existence, telling the story of a generation of musicians who changed the history of this genre. An archival research work that lasted seven years, in which the unpublished nature of the material represents the strong point of the work, which reveals the intertwining of Primo’s life and art through his words and his experiences .
The different archive formats highlight the evolutionary parable of the filming media, returning a visually experimental language in an operation about which the director – author of the documentaries Mvula or the myth of the rain, Adam’s journey and The cities of gold – declares: “I immediately began to conceive it as a film told through the archives, with the intention of recovering any type of material that could concern him, contacting all those people who in some way accompanied him in his twenty-year career or who have affected his private sphere. Finding the materials and conducting the interviews on which the film is structured took me on a journey across the country in search of backstage, auditions, live, negatives, web, radio and television materials which constitute the sources of an extremely vast and heterogeneous”.
