ITALY’S SUBMISSION FOR BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM • 2022 ACADEMY AWARDS®

From Academy Award-winning writer and director Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, The Great Beauty, The Young Pope), comes the story of a boy, Fabietto Schisa, in the tumultuous Naples of the 1980s. The Hand of God is a story full of unexpected joys, such as the arrival of football legend Diego Maradona, and an equally unexpected tragedy. Fate plays its part, joy and tragedy intertwine, and Fabietto’s future is set in motion. Sorrentino returns to his hometown to tell his most personal story, a tale of fate and family, sports and cinema, love and loss. In Italian with English subtitles. Director Paolo Sorrentino (Italy 2021) 130 min. Official Selection MVFF44
