Sonia's Story, directed by Lorenzo Guarnieri (Italy, 22 minutes)

Bianca Jenny Bomberini
Set in Florence in the '70s, this historical and political period piece is marked by terrorism and the movie describes the generational conflict of people at that time. Following utopian ideals, some Italian young people renounced their backgrounds and behaved violently. Due to her actions, Sonia lived a long period of detention, during which time she constructively reviewed her past. Sonia's life is marked by her love for art and beauty, so the Roman amphitheatre in Fiesole where she used to play as a child, welcomes her, at the end of her personal renaissance, finally free.
