FROM THE PRODUCER OF GOMORRAH

As multiple arrests are made in London and the central London Anti-G8 protest headquarters are raided by riot police prior to the 2013 Belfast G8 Summit (17 and 18 June), feature film DIAZ: DON’T CLEAN UP THIS BLOOD – a depiction of the brutal police raid of the Diaz school during the 2001 GB Summit in Genoa – effectively highlights the inevitable conflict between police and protestor in a fierce and gripping real-life account.

Diaz: Don’t Clean Up This Blood is the harrowing account of the brutal attack by 300 police on 90 activists spending the night in a school during the 2001 G8 Summit in Genoa, Italy.

As 200,000 anti-globalization activists and anarchist protestors descended on Genoa to try prevent the 27th G8 Summit taking place, authorities gave anti-riot police a free hand to repress the masses. Diaz: Don’t Clean Up This Blood tells the story of the night raid on the Diaz school – used at the time as an activists’ sleeping quarter and international media centre – and the brutal attacks and shameless humiliation inflicted on those who were there that evening.

Amnesty International called the situation: “The most serious suspension of democratic rights in a western country since the second world war”

Diaz: Don’t Clean Up This Blood is the harrowing account of the brutal attack by 300 police on 90 activists spending the night in a school during the 2001 G8 Summit in Genoa, Italy.

Told with fierce realism, Diaz is a gripping and harrowing political thriller from the producer of Gomorrah, Domenici Procacci, and acclaimed director Daniele Vicari.

Placing the viewer right at the heart of the events on the night of 21st July 2001, the true sense of injustice and fear is portrayed by a multinational cast, including Claudio Santamaria (Casino Royale), Jennifer Ulrich (The Wave), Elio Germano (My Brother Is An Only Child), Fabrizio Rongione (Rosetta) and Renato Scarpa (Don’t Look Now), all depicting real-life victims of the event.

Almost twelve years later, legal procedures and compensation claims continue against Italian police.

A powerful, gripping and intense drama based on a true event. Totally unmissable…

Diaz: Don’t Clean Up This Blood, available to buy on DVD & Blu-ray NOW.
