In their third feature film, Mister Universo, Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel accompany the superstitious, supposedly ill-fated lion trainer Tairo, whom we have already met as a fourteen-year-old in La Pivellina, on his search for lost luck. The directing duo casts a jovially-melancholic glance at the vanishing world of the circus between fiction and documentary. At Diagonale’17, Tizza Covi was awarded the Thomas Pluch Spezialpreis der Jury for the screenplay.
