All Ages

Undoubtedly one of the most riveting documentaries in recent years. 'Palio' is the definitive documentary about the ancient horse race 'Palio di Siena'.

Filmed entirely on location in the stunning town of Siena, the film documents the oldest continually run horse race in the world. The traditional rivalry, pageantry and sheer madness of this race renders this documentary truly edge-of-your-seat viewing.

Best Documentary, MBIFA
Best Editing in a Documentary Feature, Tribeca
Best Documentary Feature, London & Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

"Palio' abounds with vibrant swaths of local colour - sometimes quite literally, as when members of various contrade sport their characteristic banners and ceremonial garb - and captivates with the sort of sharply observed details that make for arresting storytelling." - Variety
