ITA | 2008 | dir. Susanna Nicchiarelli with Claudia Pandolfi, Sergio Rubini, Pietro Del Giudice

In the early sixties, 9-year-old die-hard communist siblings, Arturo and Luciana, passionately follow the progress of the space race together, urging on the Soviet cosmonauts. As the pair grow up, their relationship becomes complicated: Luciana, an aggressive, unconventional adolescent, starts going out with boys and is ashamed of her odd brother, who is held back because of his epilepsy and shows no signs of growing up. This charming and thoughtful coming-of-age story is recommended to fallen idealists of every persuasion.

Preceded by the short film Live Bait (Esca Viva, Susanna Nicchiarelli, 2012, 6 min.)

The screening will be followed by a discussion with director Susanna Nicchiarelli
