U.S. Premiere. Q&A with filmmaker Fabio Mollo at both screenings.
Grazia was 12 years old when she was told by her widower father that her beloved older brother Pietro had died, and has never spoken a word since. Now a tomboyish 18, after one of her regular arguments with her father, Grazia flees to the seaside and into the water, where she has an otherworldly experience and thinks she sees her brother. Thus begins her quest to discover another truth, not only about her lost sibling but also about herself. This poised and striking debut by the young Mollo, who shot this film in the Reggio Calabria village where he grew up, features a remarkable central performance by the young Miriam Karlkvist.
