Event Description : 
FILM FEST : Budding Italian Film Directors’ Festival. 

Schedule : 

5th April : Per un figlio (Italian/2017/ 74 mins). 
Dir. Suranga Deshapriya Katugampala. 
Sunita, a middle-aged Sri Lankan woman, lives with her teenage son on the outskirts of a northern Italian city. The relationship between the mother and son is fraught with tension and silence. Having grown up in Italy, the boy is a cultural hybrid his mother struggles to understand, as she fights to live in a country, to which she does not want to belong. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the Director. 

6th April : No Screening

7th April : Lorello e Brunello (Docu/2017/86 mins). 
Dir. Jacopo Quadri. 
The story of Brunello and Lorello Biondi, twins living in Pianetti di Sovana, southern Tuscany, revolves around time. All their time is completely dedicated to and consumed by constant work, as if they were condemned to some sort of existential labour. But, notwithstanding their efforts, they are on the verge of failure as they feel helpless in front of the dropping prices in the global economic market. 

8th April : Più buio di mezzanotte (Italian/2014/98 mins). 
Dir. Sebastiano Riso. 
An adolescent from Catania in the 1980s, Davide has a feminine appearance. The violent father does not tolerate it. Faced with hormonal treatments to masculinize him, he runs away from home and finds refuge among the outcasts of Villa Bellini, trying to be himself.

9th April : Gli ultimi butteri (Docu/Italian/2018/120 mins). 
Dir. Walter Bencini. 
Alberese, in the Tuscan Maremma, is home to the last three remaining butteri. These are heroic men who still rear cattle in the wild. Two young men have joined the group to learn this traditional craft. But only one of them will make it.

10th April : Iuventa (Docu/Italian/2018/84 mins) 
Dir. Michele Cinque. 
Through a crowdfunding campaign, a group of youngsters buys a vessel, the Iuventa, and in July 2016 starts a search and rescue program in the Mediterranean Sea, rescuing more than 14,000 people. The documentary follows the life of the protagonists from the first mission of the boat for more than a year, until their utopic and humanitarian dream clashes with reality. 

11th April : Figlia mia (Italian/2018/97 mins). 
Dir. Laura Bispuri. 
The story of a young girl torn between two mothers. A story of imperfect motherhood and inextricable bonds, struggling with overwhelming feelings and dealing with wounds.

12th April : Short Films 
Alla luce del sole (10 mins) 
Dir. Francesco Pascucci. 
A group of prostitutes is reported by their captor who tests their productivity with a primitive and animal-like rite. 
La gita (15 mins). 
Dir. Salvatore Allocca. 
Story of a 14-year-old daughter of an immigrant family from Senegal living in Italy
Il nostro limite (10 mins). 
Dir. Adriano Morelli. 
Luigi and Franco secretly love each other but are forced to live a lie, dooming themselves to a life of misery
Stai sereno (6 mins). 
Dir. Daniele Stocchi. 
Marco has been unemployed for too long and is now dejected. One day he decides to call the only person who could help him, his brother Andrea, who has been living in northern Italy for a while
Mercurio (10 mins). 
Dir. Michele Bernardi. 
Mercurio is a kid who loves cycling. One day he is stopped by the Fascist regime and incarcerated in a transit camp, ready to be sent to a concentration camp
Milady (18 mins)
Dir. Giulia Tivelli & Flavia Scardini. 
This is the story of Francesca, Ananth, Giulia and Francesco, each of a different origin, who tell us the difficulties of being adopted children.
