Ex-Otago band come back home after a year long tour, with more than one hundred sold out concerts all over Italy, and after a lucky album selling thousand of copies and winning one golden disc award. The movie tells the story of the band living its original neighbor and city, trying to explain the reasons for choosing the name of the neighbor as a title for this successful fourth album. The band was born and raised in this iconical place, and is still where its members rehearse. Is still the place where all their families live, so they always think of home when they are far away on tour. The movie represents a different sight of a city with a mysterious charm. Genova is a multiethnic, multicultural and poliedric city. The neighbor is Marassi and it’s a standard place that can be found in every urban scenario, with its social dynamics and daily living so common in the middle-class to become a neo-realist cinema cliché. Ex-Otago band finds inspiration in this kind of everyday life, among the streets, the walls and garage doors where every kid always played soccer. The album “Marassi” and its tour are declarations of love from the band to its hometown, in which Ex-Otago points up the magical value of unexpected places that can emerge only if there’s willingness to observe and listen carefully. It’s a trip that leads the viewer to discover the history of the band, its inspirations and backstage. “Marassi” represents a postmodern city of Genova, untold and uncovered in the songs of the artist Fabrizio De André. This neighbor is like a snake made of streets that ends into the sea and it speaks faithfully about our early days. The witness of live concerts and personal stories of Ex-Otago interweaves in a passionate portrait of a band which still believes in the power of music and writing, going from tours into underground clubs to the sold out dates in great italian cities, and eventually to the ending concert in Genova Piazza de Ferrari, without forgetting the concert for convicts in Genova’s city prison. A sight on the backstage of concerts as well as the real life of the band, curated by Paolo Santamaria, in which see the time between the success of Marassi album and the developments of new work “Corochinato”. The coherence of this band is like a bridge between two worlds, as well as the real bridge in Genova, the Morandi Bridge, which is full of hope in its tragic spectacularity.
