Q&A with Niccolò Falsetti

A punk band finds itself in a sticky situation in Niccolò Falsetti’s charming and funny debut feature. Set in Grosseto in 2008, the film follows three bandmates (Emanuele Linfatti, Matteo Creatini, and Francesco Turbanti) as they receive the biggest opportunity of their short careers, opening for the American hardcore band The Defense at a gig in Bologna. When the concert is canceled, the penniless punks bite off more than they can chew, inviting The Defense to play a make-up show in Grosseto and setting in motion a chain of events wherein the boys will discover just how in over their heads they truly are. A lively comedy about the messes we’ll make for ourselves just for a chance to live out our dreams, Margins is a cinematic love letter to punk rock.
