The commentary on the film on the prison world of the director, sentenced to six years in prison for competition in a mafia-type association, and now free after receiving partial pardon from the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella “I saw the trailer and I was speechless , I who lived that world. It is a communication that is changing, the one between prisoner and prison policeman. The film tells the very humanity that exists between the two sides: once upon a time, if a prisoner spoke to the prison officer he was considered a traitor, in turn the policeman is also a psychologist in some respects “. Commenting at the Adnkronos, not without emotion, the film on the prison world “Ariaferma” by Leonardo di Costanzo is Ambrogio Crespi, the director sentenced to six years in prison for complicity in mafia-type association and now free after receiving partial pardon by the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella. “My compliments to the director, who managed to transfer the truest image of the prison – he continues – It is difficult to guarantee the educational function to a person locked in a cage 24 hours a day, even more complicated that in a context of such constraint one does not become even more evil. And, however, I do not tire of fighting to ensure that prison is educational, not inhumane. In my condition as a recluse, I found, I touched the humanity that the film tells perfectly. They are all men, the inmates behind live at the bars and the policemen who work there. Different, yet so similar. The director has brought out the real drama of prison that almost never manages to transfer into reality. Congratulations also to the Festival, for giving space to a film like ‘Ariaferma ‘which can really be something that can change external sensitivity “. by Silvia Mancinelli
