  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Dying of the Light

    In the last 10 years almost all of the film projectors in cinemas disappeared, thrown in the garbage. And skilled projectionists who brought the magic from the reel of film onto the screen had to find new lives. Some of these people are my friends. I was one of those kids who made friends with the projectionist so that I could hang out in that magical, secret room at the top of the theater. This film is for us.
