Netflix Release Trailer For 'Ultras'

Netflix has released the official trailer for ‘Ultras’, a film that focuses on the Naples Ultras culture, and specifically the ageing soccer fanatic leader of the group as he faces down the reality of his past while struggling to give himself and a young follower very different futures.

Ultras focuses on Sandro (Aniello Arena), the leader of the Apache ultras group, whose life arrives at a crossroads after he is denied access to his second home: the stadium. The last weeks of the Italian championship are marked by his relationship with Angelo (Ciro Nacca), a young boy looking for a mentor, the wonderful and tough Terry (Antonia Truppo), and by the search for his place in the world.

This is the first film by Francesco Lettieri, who has forged a reputation mainly through his direction of the music videos of LIBERATO, the anonymous Neapolitan musician, who also provides the soundtrack for the film, with the trailer already providing a taster of the Italian’s latest single, “We Come From Naples”.

Ultras will be available on Netflix from 20 March.
