In viaggio con Adele [Traveling with Adele]
(2018, Italy, 83 min.)
In ITALIAN with ENGLISH subtitles
Directed by Alessandro Capitani
Adele, a young girl who suffers from a mental disorder, has never met her father and has always lived under the protective wing of her mother Margherita. Everything changes when her very existence is overturned by the latter's sudden and unexpected death and she meets Aldo, her biological father. A journey begins across an inhospitable Apulia in which two perfect strangers, who couldn’t be more different from one another, transform an improbable relationship into something unique that slowly resembles what they never thought they could be: a father and a daughter.
