The Producers


A director of cultural and social documentaries, Rudy Gnutti studied cultural anthropology at the University "La Sapienza" of Rome, and did a Masters in composition with Maestro Ennio Morricone and contemporary music composer Franco Donatoni. In 2009 he founded the film production company "Ancora Musica" and in 2010 he wrote and shot his first documentary: "Love of the Poets" (TV3, Spain).


Filmmaker and producer Pere Portabella, born 1927, has had a lifelong engagement in politics and was involved in anti-Franco movements in the 1960s. As a film director he has focused on the legacy of avant-garde culture and the boundaries of languages. His works have been exhibited at MoMA, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern and Documenta Kassel.

Making The Film


A very complex production, it took two years of extremely intense work to complete In The Same Boat, which is not just the title of the film but also the reality in which we found ourselves while shooting this documentary. With the feeling that, nowadays, problems have gone from being purely local to being universal, In The Same Boat aims to give hope for the future and to make us think about the society in which we live.
