Following its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, PALIO will be released in UK cinemas on Friday September 25th. It will close the 35th Cambridge Film Festival on Sunday September 13th.

From female director and Tuscan native Cosima Spender, PALIO is co-produced by James Gay-Rees, whose recent work includes the newly crowned biggest British documentary of all time AMY and the BAFTA winning and internationally acclaimed Senna, with John Hunt.





Francesco Melzi d’Eril, behind award-winning features including Black Souls Border, White Shadow and I Am Love, executive produced.

The Palio is the oldest horse race in the world, and turns the Italian city of Siena into a high-stakes battleground of strategy, intrigue, and simmering machismo.

In the eye of the storm stand the jockeys – adored if they succeed, despised if they fail. PALIO follows the legendary maestro Gigi Bruschelli, winner of 13 races and master of the intrigues that surround the Palio, and his former protégé Giovanni Atzeni, a handsome young contender driven by a fearless passion to become number one.

This heart-racing new documentary exposes the notoriously closed world of this ancient race and the larger-than-life personalities of those involved in an epic and cinematic tale of Italian life in microcosm.
