“Le stanze di Rol”, the section dedicated to mystery, the unknown, enigmas, and the bizarre, is more than just a section of genre cinema; is a free port with just one creed: cinema – the freest, the most untamed, the boldest – is a sign of life and thus, by its very nature, it rejects all forms of obscurantism.
“Le stanze di Rol” sidesteps stereotypes and predictable choices; its goal is to pursue excellence and offer an unconventional image of the genre.
This year, the section’s Media partner is Rai 4. Each screening will be preceded by a teaser edited by Rai Creative Direction for Rai 4 and two episodes of the TV program Wonderland will be specifically dedicated to the section.
