AVEVO UN SOGNO / I Had a Dream

AVEVO UN SOGNO / I Had a Dream

Manuela Ghizzoni and Daniela Depietri dream of changing their country, Italy, but have to meet the harsh reality. From the feminist fights against Berlusconi to the recent elections of 2018, the film explores the past ten years of Italy through the political and everyday life of the two women. Supported only by their friendship and political passion, Manuela, a member of parliament, and Daniela, active on a local level, face the Italian women-non-friendly political environment and witness a change that they would have never expected: the death of politics and rise of populism. Still, their refreshing humor casts unexpected lightness on the dark times faced by Italy.
