Greetings From Austin

by Vittorio Bongiorno

Biografilm Art&Music

(Italy / 2018 / 62’)

From Sicily to Texas, with love. The Don Diego Trio is a rockabilly band on tour in Austin. Director Vittorio Bongiorno follows the musicians on the road in this adventure among the smoky clubs of the city up to Ameripolitan, the famous country music festival. The three Sicilian "picciotti", with their jeans turn-ups and their cowboy hats, drinking beer in cans and playing with dedication. The narrating voice is that of the leader, a lonely knight of rock'n'roll who lives in the fear that his art may not be understood in Italy. Will our heroes succeed in the glorious winning of the coveted statuette?
