Details
The Lord of the Flies-style tale, set on Italy’s southern coast in a near future, follows best friends Pietro and Cristian (Dennis Protopapa and Giuliano Soprano) who hope to escape the city of Taranto, which has become a toxic wasteland, surrounded by barbed wire and ruled over by warring gangs. Things seem to be looking up when Pietro is recruited by a local boss, Testacalda (Alessandro Borghi), leader of the fearsome gang The Ants, who rechristens them with the demeaning monikers Mondocane (Dogworld) and Pisciasotto (bed-wetter). But as the situation becomes increasingly violent, and with a girl threatening to come between them, the two boys have to see if their friendship is strong enough to survive.

Director's Statement

The world we created is only partially invented,” noted Celli. “We started from what we read in the newspapers about the apparently unsolvable problem of pollution in the industrial district of Taranto, which is home to Europe’s largest steel mill. Mondocane is a film about an environmental disaster that we hope will sound a warning not only to Italy, but to all contaminated areas across the planet.
