About the film

Giovanni is a renowned Italian director, who dreams to make a film adaptation from John Cheever's The Swimmer. Life is not working too well for him though, his marriage is in crisis, his co-producer is on the verge of bankruptcy and the film industry is changing rapidly. Always on the edge, Giovanni will have to rethink his way of doing things if he wants to lead his little world towards a brighter tomorrow.

Il Sol dell’avvenire, was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival. It received seven nominations for Nastri D’Argento, and won one for Best Supporting Actress.
