1968 was the year Camillo died. Nearly 50 years after the death of his twin brother, Marco Bellocchio gathers his family to reconstruct Camillo’s disappearance. What begins as a family conversation morphs into an investigation of grief, guilt and responsibility, compassion, empathy and love.
What happens when a commitment to cinema and leftist politics eclipses the bond between twin brothers? Constellating archival footage with new interviews, veteran director Marco Bellocchio was awarded an Honorary Palme d’Or for this poignant journey into his family history and filmmaking past.
