Film review

Carlo Giuliani, A Boy airs on the Sundance Channel Monday, June 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Carlo Giuliani, A Boy, directed by Francesca Comencini, tells the story of the 23-year-old protester who was shot by the police during the July 2001 demonstrations against the G8 summit in Genoa, Italy.

The film won honorable mention at this month’s Tribeca Film Festival for Best Documentary Feature.

“What first gave birth to the film was the need to give counter information about Carlo Giuliani,” Comencini said. “The way he was killed and then how he was defamed I found unbearable … I wanted to find out who this young man really was …”

It will soon be the anniversary of Carlo’s death. Carlo Giuliani, A Boy is a fitting tribute to the complex young man and gentle poet that he was.
