“Autumn Beat” film screening with Antonio Dikele Distefano
Italian author-turned-director Antonio Dikele Distefano is working to increase representation in new Italian cinema. Distefano is developing films that bring Black performers onto the world stage so they’re no longer invisible. Autumn Beat (2022) tells the story of two brothers, Tito and Paco, who have the same dream: to break into the rap music world. Paco is a born performer and Tito knows how to write like no other. However, ambition, life, and love for the same woman will test their bond. Produced by Amazon Studios and co-produced by Indiana Productions, Autumn Beat is an exciting and unprecedented story about Black culture in Italy, and the role of music as a means of redemption and search for identity.
