Rome Film Fest to pay tribute to Ugo Tognazzi

To screen his daughter's doc about her father

The Rome Film Festival, which runs Oct. 28-Nov. 5, will pay tribute to Ugo Tognazzi on the 20th anniversary of his death with the world premiere of "Ritratto di mio padre" (Portrait of My Father), a documentary by his daughter Maria Sole Tognazzi.

In addition, every film in competition in the fest's various sections will be preceded by a montage of Tognazzi's greatest performances spanning his entire career.
 
The fest will also screen the actor's son Ricky Tognazzi's new film "Il padre e lo strainer," based on the novel of the same name by Giancarlo De Cataldo and starring Alessandro Gassman and Ksenia Rappoport.
