, the first feature film directed by Italian actress Jasmine Trinca which is set to be unveiled in an Official Selection Special Screening. The cast stars Alba Rohrwacher, Maayane Conti and Giovanna Ralli, while the story - written by the director together with Francesca Manieri - revolves around three characters: a little girl who’s an insomniac, a mother who’s an artist and a dog called Marcel. The little girl loves her mother with all her heart, but the latter loves Marcel more than anything. Will an unexpected event help these circles of love to intersect? Production comes courtesy of Cinemaundici in league with Totem Atelier (heralding the firm’s first co-production) and RAI Cinema.

Critics’ Week, meanwhile, will see Totem wagering on The Woodcutter Story [+leggi anche:

have recently been adapted for the big screen) delved back into her past: "As I watched the super 8 films we’d shot between 1972 and 1981, I realised that they weren’t only part of our family archive, they were also a testimonial to the pastimes, lifestyles and aspirations of a particular social class in the decade following 1968. I wanted to incorporate these silent images into a story where private lives, social issues and history intersect, in order to convey the taste and colour of those years." Production was entrusted to Les Films Pelléas alongside Arte France (La Lucarne).

As for the Marché du Film, this event will see Totem pressing on with pre-sales on five feature films currently in post-production: the French-Moroccan work Parmi nous (Oum) by Sofia Alaoui (article), Dead Girls Dancing by Germany’s Anna Roller (a Kalekone Film production whereby a road trip through Italy involving three high school girls takes an unexpected turn), Bowling Saturne [+leggi anche:
