Il Mio Corpo

by Michele Pennetta

Switzerland, Italy / 2020 / 80'

Oscar dreams of escaping the grip of his father whom he helps collect scrap metal in unauthorised dumps in Sicily. Stanley, a Nigerian refugee, works as a farmhand to survive. In this intense film, Michele Pennetta offers these two beings, seemingly separated by everything, the possibility of a meeting that will reveal their condition, equivalent to that of prisoners on an island.
