Directed by : Federico Frefel

Try to be perfect (2023) is a documentary by Federico Frefel, selected in the “Competition Prix SAUVAGE CORTO” section of the 19th edition of the Paris European Film Festival, Europe by Europe.

Synopsis :

In 1969, Switzerland’s image of perfection was undermined by a clumsy television operator who mistakenly deleted the official commentary of the Apollo 11 Mission. Journalists Marco Blaser and Eugenio Bigatto will return to the studio of forty years earlier to correct the mistake. But it won’t be that simple.



“Quasi Perfetto by Frederico Frefel is a film that is both gentle and humorous, focusing on the reenactment of the commentary of the Apollo 13 moon landing. Through his editing, Frefel keeps a distance from the heroic rhetoric usually associated with the subject. While revitalizing this theme, he turns it into a universal event by associating it with a Brazilian tropicalist music concert.”
Carlo Caccamo (Filmidee).
