DIRECTOR'S NOTES:     CN

Claudio Noce was born in Rome. In December 1976, his father Alfonso Noce, Assistant Chief of Police for the Region of Lazio, was injured in a terrorist assassination plot that killed a security officer and a terrorist

Regarding Padrenostro, Noce stated “when the attack was made on my father, I was just a year and half old, enough to sense the fear but not to understand that pain and worry were going to stay inside me for a long time. I was never able to tell him this. Writing this letter to my father...has not been easy. Trying to do it by turning private words into universal ones has been a great challenge as a filmmaker and as a man."
