Dario Argento Panico

Dario Argento Panico

26th TIDF: Greek Premiere

Within hotel rooms, sheltered from the outside world, Dario Argento created his most acclaimed films. Today, in a hotel room in Rome’s countryside, he is writing his last. This time, however, he is not alone. Today, in agreement with his agent, he decides to return to a temporary space to conclude his script and to be interviewed, filmed, and followed by a crew that is shooting a film about him. Inside this structure, Argento does not initially feel at ease, struggling to find tranquility both to finish the writing, and to confide in who is interviewing him. But the demon of cinema (and his inner demon), who never abandoned him, followed him up there and will push him, once again, to give himself totally.
