Omaggio al cinema catodico di Paolo Caredda - secondo appuntamento: UNSUNG HEROES

The sixth day of Biografilm 2024 opens with the section OMAGGIO AL CINEMA CATODICO DI PAOLO CAREDDA - Secondo appuntamento: UNSUNG HEROES.

Paolo Caredda
was considered by many who knew him as the best Italian director around. Coming from Genova and a Genoa soccer fan, he graduated from DAMS in Bologna and played a key role in launching the Italian versions of channels such as MTV, Tele+ and Discovery. He directed numerous documentaries, including one on Pazienza, seen at Biografilm 2016. Author of short stories, novels, and essays published by Einaudi and Edizioni ISBN, his participation in the literary anthology Gioventù cannibale, edited by Daniele Brolli and published in 1996, became famous.
