(ANSA) – ROME, DEC 22 – A film dedicated to Federica Pellegrini will be in Italian cinemas on 10, 11 and 12 January: it is called ‘Federica Pellegrini underwater’ and it is a documentary produced by Fremantle and distributed by Notorious Pictures faithfully the approach march to Tokyo 2020 and the final in ‘his’ race, the 200 meters freestyle. A goal that will prove even more difficult than expected. Pellegrini gets involved in front of the cameras.
The film also tells a story that starts from afar, the story of a tenacious and introverted girl, strongly determined, with the support of her parents, to pursue her sports dreams to become the greatest Italian swimmer of all time. An intimate story in which the most followed and celebrated Italian champion ever decides to also show her weaknesses, opening the doors of a secret dimension: the relationship and love with the coach Matteo Giunta, then the indissoluble and profound bond with parents, domestic joys and painful memories, such as the death of the coach who made her become a legend (Alberto Castagnetti) and the bulimia experienced during adolescence.
The repertoire material – the races, the victories, but also the unpublished videos of her beginnings, shot at home with a vhs room – the footage of Federica’s public and private life during the last two years make up a unique documentary film, which it is not meant to be purely celebratory.
