festival & awards:

The film is dedicated to the birthday of the cinema, which will celebrate 120 years in 2015. Its title refers to the first screening of the history of the cinema, held in Paris in 1895. The film combines the narrative paths of reportage and pure fiction; it is a stylistic choice wich allows Diomà to tell some of the most revolutionary moments of the history of the Seventh Art. The film stars master Francesco Rosi, Golden Lion and Golden Bear for career achievement and Palm d’or at the Cannes Film Festival for The Mattei Affair. In Born in the U.S.E., the last cinematographic work which sees his participation, Francesco Rosi also tells some unknown anecdotes about his extraordinary work on political cinema. In addition, Born in the U.S.E. stars director Giuseppe Tornatore, Academy Award for Cinema Paradiso, and Luis Bacalov, Academy Award for The Postman by Michael Radford and Massimo Troisi. The film also stars the producers Renzo Rossellini and Donald Ranvaud.
