The Mario Verdone Award 2019, tenth edition, has been awarded to Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo for Boys Cry (Italy, 2018) with the following motivation: “While telling how it is damn easy to grow accustomed to evil, the D’Innocenzo brothers make a focused portrait of a young generation torn between the lure of the hell to which they are destined and the sudden realisation that awareness is already in itself a way out.

A duo of filmmakers to watch and an exceptionally filmed debut feature, displaying an already ambitious conception of filmmaking and unpredictably conveying the need for moral anxiety towards a firstly personal and secondly social redemption”.

The Award, dedicated to the memory of Mario Verdone and established ten years ago by the European Film Festival in collaboration with the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (Experimental Film Centre) and the National Union of Italian Film Journalists (SNGCI) and in agreement with the Verdone family, addresses young Italian filmmakers who have particularly stood out in the latest film season for the their debut films.
