Marco Bonfanti's warm-hearted documentary focuses on the life and influences of Bruno Bozzetto
"What is a drawing? It is a line around an idea." Marco Bonfanti's warm-hearted documentary focuses on the life and influences of Bruno Bozzetto, master animator and creator of the endearingly hapless character Signor Rossi. Drawing on a wealth of footage and interviews with distinguished fans including John Lasseter and Nick Park, Bonfanti illuminates the legacy of an artist whose career spans over five decades.
Afterwards there’s a chance to enjoy one of Bozzetto's finest hours. Allegro Non Troppo is an episodic extravaganza set to music from the likes of Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky. Think Disney’s Fantasia, but with a hefty dose of satire, sauce and psychedelia.
