The world premiere of Giovanni Veronesi’s film Non È Un Paese Per Giovani will open February 19 in Hollywood at Los Angeles, Italia – Film, Fashion and Art Fest, an event dedicated to Italian cinema.
The film stars Filippo Scicchitano, Giovanni Anzaldo and Sara Serraiocco.
Veronesi says he got the idea for the film from a radio show from doing a radio show by the same name, where for over the past year he’s been calling young Italians living abroad and asked them to their stories and why they left Italy. “What these young people told me was at times funny, at others unbearably remorseful”.
“More than 100,000 kids a year leave Italy in silence without making a sound”, says Veronesi.” It’s a slow but relentless exodus that will bring about the absence of fundamental pieces in future generations.”
