An Ordinary Adventure” is the adventure of a screenwriter who, in the midst of the Covid19 pandemic, finds himself locked up at home to have to write an original story with little time and with absolute lack of ideas and imagination. An original film production created at a time contrary to the production of a film. Totally Unnecessary Production, an independent company based in Montreal, and the Italian Cultural Institute, will present a preview of a work conceived, written, shot, interpreted and edited by the director Roberto Zorfini during the time of the quarantine.
