Punta Sacra

Cinema fans associate Ostia above all with the tragic death of Pasolini. The coastal district of Rome has changed since then, but the local neighbourhood at the mouth of the Tiber at Punta Sacra is not going to surrender to the marine element or human plans. With fondness, the director observes how the residents, in particular women and children, make a harmonious community despite the uncertainty of the future and never-ending makeshift solutions. The prose of life meets with poetic imagery, while individual stories of the protagonists blend into the unique atmosphere of the place that may soon disappear from maps. (Krakow Film Festival)
