Giorgio Cugno (Dir), 108 minutes, Italy, North American Premiere

Director Giorgio Cugno and Producer Giulia Mercandino in attendance.

In Italian w/ English subtitles.

Who are we when nobody is watching? What are our fantasies and phobias if we don’t share them? After many years in a protected psychiatric community, Alberto comes to stay with Vicky’s family. As a vulnerable adult, Alberto divides his time between his old therapeutic community, his work, and adapting to the rhythms and boundaries of his new ‘home’. A touching, unexpected friendship anchors this stark, first-person window into psychosis.
