In Sacro GRA, Gianfranco Rosi turns his observational and sympathetic eye to a section and subculture of his own country. For over two years he explored Rome’s giant ring road—the Grande Raccordo Anulare (GRA)—in a minivan, to discover and film the invisible worlds and possible futures harbored in this area of constant turmoil. Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2013 Venice Film Festival, Sacro GRA is an engaging tour of the eight-lane highway surrounding Rome that forms a car trench separating the city from its suburbs and is populated by a fascinating group of eccentrics.
