Alessandro Rossetto, Director and Co-Screenwriter, Piccola Patria.
Festival Section: Spectrum.
Filmmaker Alessandro Rossetto talks to FRED about his film PICCOLA PATRIA (Small Homeland), which was presented at the 43rd International Film Festival Rotterdam.
Superb fiction debut from an experienced documentary maker shows a small community in northern Italy, where city and countryside merge, like a patchwork quilt unravelling under pressure from the crisis, migration and decadence. In the stultifying summer heat, two women pursue their escapist dreams – and create nightmares.
