Beyond the Beach triumphs at Venice Biennale

Dover Street Entertainment’s debut feature film receives a seven minute standing ovation.

Beyond the Beach: The Hell and the Hope was invited to the 76th Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica, La Biennale di Venezia (Venice Film Festival 2019) in Sconfini – Out of Competition.

The premiere, which took place on September 3rd 2019, was an immediate success, leaving audiences awe-struck. The emotional impact of the imagery and the films content was palpable, moving many people to tears.

Marco Cacioppo said “It is a film about something that is very close to my heart. I hope the widest possible audience is able to see it. From a cinematic perspective, it is very impressive what was achieved given the circumstances in which it was shot.”

Other audience members were quoted: “It is important to make the work of Emergency known. It speaks out against the individualism of our times, an important film.”

“I am devastated! It is a very powerful film. My cousin is a photo journalist, so I can relate to the work of the filmmakers, and I think they did an excellent job. It will leave a lasting impact on me.”

“I am crying! Powerful film. Enough said.”
