Bobby alive in Capri

Bobby, the documentary by Emilio Estevez on the 1968 assassination of U.S. Senator Robert Kennedy, will be previewed on Saturday, December 30 at the Capri, Hollywood International Film Festival. (www.caprihollywood.com).

After critical acclaim at the exhibition of Venice and in the United States, the film will be seen in Italy beginning in 2007 thanks to 01 Distribution. Its Italian opening will be at the Blue Island where, among others, it will be a focus of discussion at the Fiuggi Symposium on “Cinema—Where are the Ideas?” The symposium will draw directors, artists, sociologists and communications experts to assess where the film industry is headed.

The special screening of Bobby, announced in combination with a visit to Naples by Kathleen Kennedy, daughter of Robert, enriches the "Premiere Kimbo" program of the 11th annual "Capri, Hollywood" that also includes the Italian preview of the new James Bond film, Casino Royale (organized with the Casino of Venice), the special projection of the surprise phenomenon Borat, and Io, l'altro with Raoul Bova.

Promoted by Capri in the World Institute with the support of the European Union, the Councillorship for Tourism of the Campania Region, and the director general's Office for Cinema of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Assets and Activities, the festival will screen some 70 films, including previews and reviews of the best films of 2006, and will attract on-screen stars and behind-screen leaders of the film industry.

"The only thing that I knew in the beginning was that I wanted to make a film that paid homage to the spirit of Bobby,” says Emilio Estevez, who adds that when he saw the scene of the assassination at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, he knew “it was a film we had to make.”

Kennedy was shot moments after his victory speech the night of California’s Democratic Party presidential primary election.

Estevez continues: “The history of Bobby Kennedy does not only belong to the Americans but it is a source of inspiration for all the people of the world. Its message and its dreams still live. All those who have worked on this film have made it because they are interested in the things that Bobby Kennedy said. What emerged clearly from the beginning is that the issues that Kennedy faced in his time are the same ones we face today.”

Estevez says he hopes that this film succeeds in causing the public to realize that the ideas and principles supported by Kennedy are still important and pertinent. "From that moment of June 5, 1968 on, it seemed we became more and more cynical and resigned, and I think it’s a big part of why we are where we are at culturally today," says Estevez. "It’s heartbreaking."
