What Autumn Beat is about
The film, written by Antonio Dikele and Massimo Vavassori, is in fact a profound and moving portrait of the second generation of Italian blacks. Autumn Beat is a coming-of-age story that follows the story of Tito and Paco, two brothers who grew up in Milan with the same dream: to break into the world of rap and be heard through music.
Paco is a born performer and Tito knows how to write like no other, they seem destined for success but ambition, life and love for the same woman will test their bond, in an exciting three-decade-long story.
“This film is important because it tells about Milan and a black family that changes over time. Music and love have always saved me in life” explains Antonio Dikele Distefano. “My wish is to be able to tell the stories I saw when I was a kid and I was sitting on the sidewalk outside my mother’s shop. I want those people to one day turn on the television and think ‘I feel represented in this movie.’ a privilege that I have never had, if not looking out of the country “.
