Event Details

A journalist writes a letter to his unborn child from an island off the coast of Brazil triggered by memories of a recent journey.
He has returned from a drug rehabilitation centre in Rio De Janeiro, where he met a missionary priest who shelters teenagers on the run from the drug cartels. The imminent arrival of the journalist’s child acts as a reflection on his next steps as a father and as an active participant in the world. Mixing documentary and poetic narrative, we fall into a series of memories, interviews and intimate recollections that open up a perspective of laughter, innocence and resilience in a world commonly seen as horrifying and hopeless.

Director: Luca Ammendola
