The documentary film "The Castle" produced and directed by Massimo D’Anolfi & Martina Parenti, was awarded the First Prize of the Internationa Jury at HOTDOCS 2011.
One year in the life of Malpensa intercontinental airport, Italy’s main airport with over 18 million passengers crossing its corridors every year and one of the largest in Europe. As in Kakfa’s novel, this is a place where bureaucracy, procedures and control put individual freedom through to a serious test. An observational documentary, a complex mosaic of faces and gestures which can be poignant and touching, at times even ironic.
Produced in association with RAI Cinema, the documentary is distributed by GA&A Productions worldwide.
