Ordinary Justice selected at Berlinale Generation

17 February 2020

Ordinary Justice (Palazzo di giustizia), first feature written and directed by Chiara Bellosi, has been selected for the official competition at Generation. Cast include Daphne Scoccia, Bianca Leonardi, Sarah Short, Nicola Rignanese, Giovanni Anzaldo, Andrea Lattanzi. Original score by Giuseppe Tranquillino Minerva.

The film recounts a day of ordinary justice in a large Italian courthouse. At the center, in the heart of the building, a hearing: in the docks sits a young criminal and the petrol station attendant who reacted, shot and killed the former’s young accomplice. We see rituals, robes, interrogations, pieces of evidence, witnesses. But the film also (or especially?) tells the story of what happens beyond the courtroom: the corridors, offices, ushers, families, children and partners of the accused and of the victims, waiting outside.

Ordinary Justice is produced by tempesta / Carlo Cresto-Dina with Rai Cinema in co-production with Cinèdokkè. International Sales:Vision distribution. Ordinary Justice is made with Ecomuvi, the first and only European sustainability protocol for film production.
