Lo Chiamavano Jeeg Robot (“They Call Me Jeeg”) is an Italian drama/fantasy about Enzo, an anti-social ex-con who springs from the impoverished outskirts of Rome. He gains superhuman strength after interacting with radioactive waste but uses it to further his career as a delinquent. When Enzo falls in love with Alessia, a woman battling her own problems, he learns the importance of helping others. However, playing hero comes with a price.
Directed by Gabriele Mainetti, Lo Chiamavano Jeeg Robot received rave reviews and a slew of award nominations after its release. It spawned a comic book in 2016, which chronicles events after the movie. See it at Cinema Akil, Alserkal Avenue’s independent film theatre. You can buy tickets at the door or in advance online.
