St. Petersburg premiere

A young sailor decides to get an education and become a writer for the love of a girl who is out of his league. His willpower and individualism help him to overcome the circumstances of his birth, but they do not bring him happiness.
A rising star director of European cinema, Pietro Marcello turns to the prose of Jack London in his first fully fictional film (he has already made several documentaries and semidocumentaries), here transferring the action from the Oregon of a century ago to mid-20th century Naples. The exact chronology is deliberately vague, obscured among other things by the use of impressionistic, anachronistic musical selections, and non-diegetic poetic inserts of archival footage.
Marcello draws on the imagery and technology of the last century (Martin Eden was shot on film), but his latest work doesn’t amount to rejection of modernity. The film’s political scope resonates unexpectedly with the present day, and Marcello’s attention to the colours and textures of the 20th century represents less a return to the past than a journey “back to the things themselves”.

Pietro Marcello, born in 1976 in Caserta, Italy, is an Italian director and writer. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. His earlier documentary work includes Crossing the Line (2007), which was screened in the Orizzonti programme of the Venice Film Festival. In 2015 he directed his first fiction film, Lost and Beautiful, for which he won the Junior Jury Award at the Locarno International Film Festival. His latest film, Martin Eden, was nominated for the Golden Lion in Venice and won the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.
