Film premiere and directors Q&A: C’è un soffio di vita soltanto / A breath of life (2022)

Tue 21 November 2023

Arts Picturehouse

Film synopsis

Lucy is a 95-year-old woman. In her apartment, photos turned yellow with the passing of time, tell the story of the adolescence of a boy who at the time was called Luciano and who was going to live through the most terrible period of his life. Lucy is the oldest transsexual woman in Italy. She is among the few survivors of Dachau’s concentration camp.

Lucy’s story is the story of the 1900s. The events of her turbulent life have become a metaphor for a humanity that does not give up and that treasures the most important gift in history; memory, as a unique and irreplaceable starting point.
