EXCLUSIVE: Trailer for Venice title Assandira
- The new feature by Italian filmmaker Salvatore Mereu is world-premiering out of competition at the 77th Venice Film Festival
Soaked to the skin, Costantino sinks into the haystack like old timber left on the shore by a stormy sea. Torrential rain has just put out the fire that in a single night ravaged Assandira, a farmstay deep in the woods of Sardinia. But the rain hasn’t quenched the pain, the endless remorse for the son lost to the flames, the son he was unable to save. The first to arrive are the carabinieri and the young investigating magistrate: Costantino tries to tell them what happened the previous night, to explain how it all began...
This is the plot of Assandira [+see also:
