Damiano D'Innocenzo, Fabio D'Innocenzo (Roma, 1988). They spent their childhood on the outskirts of Rome painting, writing poems and taking photographs. Without any formal film-making training, they have created video clips, films for television and the cinema as well as a theatre play. Their debut as feature film directors a terra dell’abbastanza (Boys Cry) has been presented  at the 68th Berlinale within the “Panorama” section and it won the  Nastri d'Argento Award 2018 as First Time Director.

Mirko (Matteo Olivetti) and Manolo (Andrea Carpenzano) are two young friends in the suburbs of Rome. Good boys up to the moment when, while driving late at night, they run over a man and decide to run away. The tragedy seems to turn into good luck as the man they ran over is a “pentito” (somebody of a clan who becomes a police confident and informant) of a local criminal clan. Having killed him, the two boys acquire the status, the respect and the money they had never had in their lives. A pass to hell that they think it is a pass to paradise.
