Black hairs, black eyes, somatic features od the west side, today, in great expasion. The Indian troupe of “MV Films International” last Sunday (25th January) shoot in the routes of Falls for half an hour. 6 managers of the cinematographic house and 3 escorts of the Umbrian Film Commission together with Marmore Falls walk along Byron Square and then entered in the park, exceptionally opened in the afternoon ( as you know, in December and in January the routes 1,2,3, are closed for “environmental and climatic” reasons).
“Wonderful”, they say at the end of tour. It means, probably, that Marmore Falls will be choose like a location for a new comedy shoot in Umbria, a new production of the Indian Hollywood called Bollywood. Bollywood is a mixing between Hollywood and Bombay, the greatest cinematographic industry of the earth, a dream for million of people (Indians) all over the world. A place where “we produce more than 5000 films every year and several musical video clips that show to the Indians where they are, beautiful places…and inspire new productions and generate a lot of tourists”, says the communiqué of the Umbrian Film Commission. The filming start in April, it is a love comedy located in the green heart of Italy. It is sure that Marmore Falls will be the location very attractive for many cinematographic productions.
Years ago, Dario Argento filmed “ Stendhal ‘s syndrome”. In Autumn the actor Ethan Hawke and the director Richard Linklater visited the area. They searched places to shoot the story about St. Francis life; today another international movie to distribute where the Indian community are: Kabul, London, Manila…and maybe the ciac will be again in the Studios of Papigno Cinecittà, not far from Marmore Falls, where Roberto Benigni filmed “la vita è bella”.
We confirm the good job of the Umbrian Film Commission, an agency made for the productions on the territory. and we confirm also the good job of the Local Administration: the Umbrian region – together with the Institute for the foreign trade, the body that creates a contact between the Indian cinematographic market and the tourism aldermanship of Terni Province and Municipality.
