Space Metropoliz

2013, 100 mins, color, Italy (with English subtitles)
Fabrizio Boni, Giorgio de Finis

A science-fiction story about cohabitation, sharing and political commitment. Metropoliz is a former pork meat factory in a Roman suburb, in a far away galaxy called “Tor Sapienza”. One day a group decided to break the padlock of a rusted gate, and to make that place feel like home to them.  But the new inhabitants are forced to struggle for their rights, because people on the Earth did not quite understand them. Tired of being under siege, one day they decide to escape from the centrifugal force shoving them aside from civil society, preventing them from home, work, health and rights. Their project is simple: building a rocket which would fly them to the Moon.
