Italy | 2013 | col | dir. Enrico Maria Artale, with Pier Giorgio Bellocchio, Stefano Cassetti, Germano Gentile | UK premiere

A social worker pushes a young charge just released from juvie to try his luck at rugby in The Third Half, an efficient mix of social drama and inspiring sports story. Vincenzo is assigned by a judge to look after Samuel, who’s been given a job at a farm after a stint at a juvenile detention centre. But Samuel isn’t the only one with troubles: Vincenzo used to be a star rugby player and now finds himself a trainer of the same team, which plays at the bottom of their league.

Followed by a Q&A with director Enrico Maria Artale
