K+ (K Plus Film) is a film production company based in Verona, Italy, operating in Cinema, TV and advertising since 2007. Founded by Nicola Fedrigoni, the Company has produced award winning independent films and documentaries. We acquire literary rights and develop original scripts, selecting each project, taking care of every production aspect, thanks to over 15 years of experience and consolidated relationships with institutions, film commissions, partners, financiers and distributors. Our aim is to grow internationally, by expanding our networking, looking for main and minor co-productions.
We are inspired by original ideas and good vibes. We love to explore, test and face new challenges, producing films with passion and participation, while always bringing our ‘Plus’. We produce independent films, looking at a classic cinema, made up of various different genres, where depth and lightness, territory and dreams prevail. A quality entertainment cinema that knows how to tell a story in surprising and innovative ways. No matter how real or grotesque, how palpable or ineffable, how concrete or ambiguous, the result will be a world apart, in a word: unique.

A visionary journey into the history of clubbing in Italy that starts with a look at its ruins spread across Italy. Its rise and fall, as told by the history’s key players; a tale that lasted 40 years, between nights on the highway and days consumed in afterhours clubs. It was a seemingly unstoppable rise, like house music coming out of New York. It’s a story of four generations yearning to be added to a list get into places of gathering and perdition, where what counts is not what you do during the day, but only who you turn into at night. Fourty years of “planet disco” producing culture, art, music and style, among plenty of contraddictions and aberrations.

Orlando is a solitary man, lazy and on his way to give up. He lives day-to- day on the banks of the Po’ river, until the 2012 earthquake forces him to takehis life back into his own hands, to take care of his niece, to deal with an old love and, above all, to bring his old band back. He ends up rediscovering the beauty of doing things together. A story told amid the dance halls known as “balere,” poplar forests, and life along the shores of the great river which, with its undulating banks, assembles, pulls apart, and brings with it the wisdom of a culture that, despite its modernity, never forgets its identity. A colourful and light-hearted comedy, brought alive by music, landscapes, love, and a desire to get back n the game.

The story unravels on the rolling hills where Prosecco grapes are grown; a winemaker Count, fighting to protect his territory, a half Italian half Persian police inspector who is more stubborn than a thick fog; the manager of a cement plant who on a rainy night falls in the mud forever, killed by three gunshots; and a crazy man who scrapes the rust from the tombs in the cemetery, chatting blessings.
