Sicilian Ghost Story, their new film profect in pre-production is among winners of this year’s Sundance Institute Global Filmmaking Award.
Each year the Award honors “emerging directors from different global regions who possess the originality, talent and vision to be celebrated as the future of world cinema”.
More good news: The Match Factory, an international distributor, has already bought the rights and they haven’t even begun to shoot the film (that will begin in October 2016).
Directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza, who brought us one of ten best of the last ten years, Salvo, were at Sundance participating in the January Screenwriters’ Lab.
Iocinema.com called it one of the Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016 , but I’ve got it in my top 5, Sicilian Ghost Story is about a 13-year-old Sicilian girl named Luna who refuses to accept the sudden disappearance of Giuseppe, the young boy she loves, when he is kidnapped because he is the son of a Mafia boss.
