Sacro GRA

Gianfranco Rosi's urban documentary portrays vividly the lives of people dwelling and working around Italy's greatest ribbon of asphalt and the country's biggest national motorway that encircles Rome: the GRA or "Grande Raccordo Anulare" (Great Ring Road). As a result, for nearly two years of exploring and documenting the almost 70km of looping highway, Rosi brings to the foreground the day-to-day routine of ordinary men and women whose lives revolve around this urban hideaway, with unexpected interviews which compose the profile of a microcosm on the outskirts of Great Rome.
