"Piccolo corpo"
(Italiy/France/Slovenia, 2021 - 89min. - vostf)

Italy, 1900. Young Agata’s baby is stillborn and so condemned to Limbo. Agata hears about a place in the mountains, where infants can be brought back to life for just one breath, to baptize them and save their soul. She undertakes a voyage with her daughter’s small body hidden in a box and meets Lynx, a solitary boy who offers to help her. They set off on an adventure which will enable both to come close to a miracle.

Laura Samani attended Philosophy and Literature faculty at Università di Pisa. In May 2012 she took a BA degree in Cinema and Communication Studies, graduating with a thesis focused on Twin Peaks. The following summer she decided to switch from studying to actually doing cinema: she shot her first short movie that allowed her to be one of the six students in the Directing class at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia di Roma, 2013-2015 triennium. The Sleeping Saint, her degree short movie, has been selected for Cinéfondation 2016, Cannes.
