Figure emblématique du cinéma direct, Gianfranco Rosi s'est rendu aux quatre coins du monde pour réaliser ses films. Son cinéma traite avant tout de rencontres avec des hommes et des femmes aux destins à part : un tueur du cartel des narco-trafiquants au Mexique, un groupe de marginaux vivant au milieu du désert à 300 km au sud-est de Los Angeles et Gopal le passeur voguant le long du Gange à Bénarès (Inde)
Sacro GRA by Gianfranco Rosi( Visual )

23 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in Italian and French and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ring road around Rome, the Grande Raccordo Anulare is the most extensive urban highway in Italy and the locale for Gianfranco Rosi̕s intriguing concept of a documentary, Sacro GRA. Punning on the Sacro Graal, or Holy Grail, this follow-up to Rosi̕s American-set Below Sea Level takes a neutral look at intriguingly disparate lives near the highway̕s edge, yet neglects to demonstrate why they should all be in one film."--Http://variety.com

Der Dokumentarfilm entstand in einem Motelzimmer in einer amerikanisch-mexikanischen Grenzstadt und stellt einen eloquenten Mann vor, der weitgehend emotionslos von seinen Taten berichtet.

Boatman by George Caleb Bingham( Visual )

Gopal the boatman guides his boat through the slow, endless waters of the sacred Ganges, observing and commenting on the inexhaustible variety of life that teems along its banks where Indians mingle with tourists, where the wealthy are burned on pyres and the bodies of the poor are cast into the river. The filmmaker describes it as "a journey without destination". During the course of eight visits to Benares and many days spent filming with Gopal, Rosi sought to capture the atmosphere of that first day he had spent on the river with the boatman
Fuego en el mar (Fuocoammare)( Visual )

4 editions published in 2017 in Spanish and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La isla de Lampedusa es el punto más meridional de Italia, que desde 1990 se ha convertido en un lugar masivo de desembarco de inmigrantes ilegales procedentes de tierras africanas. En poco más de 20 años, más de 20.000 personas se han ahogado durante la travesía para alcanzar lo que para muchos supone vía de entrada a Europa, y que les debería permitir escapar de la guerra y el hambre. Samuel vive en la isla, tiene 12 años, va a la escuela, le gusta tirar con la honda e ir de caza. Le gustan los juegos de tierra, pese a que todo a su alrededor habla del mar y de los hombres, mujeres y niños que intentan cruzarlo para llegar allí

Havet brenner( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dokumentaren "Havet brenner" vant Gullbjørnen på filmfestivalen i Berlin. Filmen følger beboere på den lille øyen Lampedusa i Middelhavet, som gjør det de kan for å hjelpe utslitte flyktninger, som kommer i land fra synkeferdige båter. I "Havet brenner" rettes fokuset mot øyas beboere, og deres forsøk på å la hverdagen gå sin gang mens det koker i bølgene rundt dem. Aller tettest kommer vi på 12 år gamle Samuele, som kommer fra en fiskerfamilie. Lykkelig uvitende om omfanget av katastrofen der ute, har han likevel en dragning mot det store og ukjente havet. Filmen fikk terningkast 4-5 i norske aviser. Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
Sacro GRA : tales from Rome's ring road by Gianfranco Rosi( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sacro GRA follows the stories of those living on the fringes of Rome's ring-road, the Grande Raccordo Anulare. Gianfranco Rosi weaves a tapestry out of the river of traffic in perpetual motion and the people that inhabit it. The worlds of a nobleman, a botanist, a paramedic, an eel fisherman, and a modern-day prince all intersect while completely unaware of each other, and it is at these intersections that the simple beauties of life are revealed. Far from the iconic sites of Rome, the GRA is a repository of stories of those at the edges of the ever-expanding universe of the capital city."
