Italian Film Festival USA: Il vizio della speranza (The Vice of Hope)
(Italy/2018-directed by Edoardo De Angelis)
Maria, with her hood up and a resolute step, lives day to day without dreams or desires. She takes care of her mother and is at the service of a bejeweled madam, transporting pregnant women across a river, like a modern-day Charon. But hope will pay Maria a visit, in its most ancestral and powerful form, as miraculous as life itself, teaching her that staying human is the greatest revolution of all.
In Italian with English subtitles. (96 min.)
