US PREMIERE Filmmaker Alessandro Rossellini explores his complex family and the complicated legacy of his legendary grandfather, director Roberto Rossellini, the “father of Neorealism.” The son of Roberto’s oldest living child, Renzo, and the African American dancer Katherine Cohen, Alessandro previously directed the documentary Viva Ingrid!, profiling his grandfather’s third wife, Ingrid Bergman. Now in his 50s, Alessandro tries to unravel the layers of the family history through funny and poignant interviews with relatives, including his famous aunt Isabella Rossellini, and a memorable reunion with his mother. – Thom Powers
