Director: MAURO JOHN CAPECE & PIERPAOLO MOIO
In this stylized satire, like something out of Buster Keaton in a futuristic world of the modern metropolis, Alien, a special man, is born. The environment in which he evolves and interacts selects him as the father of future generations.
This is the story of a human “Alien” who observes and re- produces our daily reality, says the maverick director in this offbeat experimental work from a new Rome filmmaking team. Two possible interpretations of our time are given in the film: the logical and neutral one offered by Alien, and the passionate and cruel one of the other protagonists. It is also the story of a new generation of Italian men and women, Italians of the future. A science fiction movie it is not, but describes the present situation that Italians are subject to, willingly or unwillingly. What will the future Italian be like? How will he behave? What will he think of other Italians? Who will his friends be?
Mauro John Capece and Pierpaolo Moio made several short films for cinema and television: How Much Longer?, Il sopranista, La prima(s)volta (The First Time) Cars, Oggidominis Rewind, Pop & Soap, Nocturne, Maledetta scrittura, Colori and Il sopranista. Alien, The Man Of The Future is their debut feature.
