A short musical-themed film review: a cycle of four appointments (two of which are exclusive screenings for Milan), each accompanied by an opening talk and the presence of special guests in the room, including artists and insiders. These are the main ingredients for the creation of the I Love Cinema Rock podcast hosted by Tommaso Toma, director of Billboard Italia. The first podcast is dedicated to the fabulous Kurt Cobain documentary directed by Brett Morgen (also author of the successful documentary Moonage Daydream). Under the title You are already a rocker “in utero”?, Tommaso Toma asked questions to Christian Godano of the Marlene Kuntz, Roberta Sammarelli of the Verdena and the director Alex Infascelli and together they talked about the film and the controversial figure of the late leader of Nirvana.
For the second episode entitled The ultimate indie rock renaissancethe conversations were inspired by the documentary by Will Lovelace And Dylan Southern Meet Me In The Bathroomwhich recounts the exploits of the New York scene at the turn of the millennium.
And in the talk you will find the voices of some protagonists of that historical period in the MTV music channel such as Carlo Pastore and Francesco Mandelli as well as the Sky sports journalist Mauro Bevacqua and the stylist Susanna Ausoni. The third episode of the ILCR podcast is dedicated to the remarkable biopic Controlshot in black and white by the director and photographer Anton Corbijn and which sees the interpretation of Sam Riley in the role of icon Ian Curtis of Joy Division. The director – who has always been a great lover of the Mancunian music scene – called for the episode with the evocative title, Even the working class goes to heaven, ANDY of the bluvertigothe fashion journalist Giuliana Matarrese And Fausto Lama of the Coma_Things.
This first cycle ended with Don’t Go Gentle. A Film about Idlesfandom documentary by Mark Archer which chronicles the rise of the famous English post-punk band. In the episode titled, When vulnerability is an irresistible weaponwhich recalls one of the important themes of the band from Bristol, the journalist Giulia Cavaliere, Giuseppe Mangiameli of Deerwaves and Sethu are around the table.
