It’s a fairy tale with noir vibes, in a retro feel where the archetypes are adapted to modernity. Produced by Luciano Stella and Maria Carolina Terzi, the “Cinderella the Cat” features the voices of Alessandro Gassmann, Massimiliano Gallo, and Maria Pia Calzone, along with an original soundtrack showcasing contemporary Neapolitan musical talents.
“Penalty, a Freak Factory, Rai Cinema, Rai Fiction, and People Artistic production in association with Inn-A-Circle Productions won the Migro Award at the 2017 Sedicioto International Film Festival. The film is set in the middle of nowhere, where a group of guys play a game of football. In doing so they discover that at stake is much more than a simple victory.
“With its slick, creative animation and a very cool yet sinister score, ‘Cinderella the Cat’ takes a classic tale and creates a dynamic cinema noir world against the canvas of Naples that should be very attractive to adult animation lovers,” said Festival founder and producer Pascal Vicedomini. “Our honoring the film with the ‘Capri European Best Animated Feature of the Year’ award is extremely satisfying because the movie personifies Italian artistry at its best.”
Vicedomini continued: “The drama, ‘Penalty,’ deals with the very pertinent subject of immigration, which is a headline grabbing story of today. We are delighted to be introducing both of these Italian films to an American audience on November 27th.”
This is the fourth honor that 'Capri, Hollywood 2017' has announced so far. The Festival has already presented British producer and director Trudie Styler with the ‘Person of the Year Award,’ named Argentinian Graciela Rodriguez as recipient of the ‘Educational Award’ for the movie “Beyond the Sun,” where Pope Francis makes a special appearance, and “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of My Life” as ‘Documentary of the Year.”
