A tale of passion and dreams that starts in a street-level apartment in Naples and turns into an incredible international adventure. In the mythical Italian town of the 1980s, where Maradona is worshipped like a god, Enrico “Erry” Frattasio and his brothers Peppe and Angelo create an empire with the cassettes Erry makes for his friends. A sensational feat that will change their lives and Italy’s very definition of piracy, bringing music into the lives of everyone.

The three Frattasio brothers are played by Luigi D’Oriano (Erry), Giuseppe Arena (Peppe), Emanuele Palumbo (Angelo). The movie also stars Fabrizio Gifuni, Francesco Di Leva, Greta Esposito, and Cristiana Dell’Anna.

The cinematography is by Valerio Azzali, set design by Tonino Zera, costumes by Valentina Taviani. Casting is by Francesca Borromeo (u.i.c.d.).

The movie, produced by Matteo Rovere, is a Groenlandia production with Rai Cinema. It received the support of Regione Campania, Fondazione Film Commission Regione Campania, and Genova Liguria Film Commission. It will be distributed by 01 Distribution.

Director’s Notes

This exciting and incredible story, brimming with life and ambition, is inspired by real events. I am thrilled to finally tell the story of Erry and his brothers, a story that I experienced directly as a boy, which has always made me think of how talent and passion have no nationality or boundaries. After all, “Dj’s are born even in Forcella.”
