The island that was (L'isola che c'era)


    In 1954, legendary italian neorealist director Renato Dall’Ara shot his first short film, helped by a group of friends and communist Polesian cinema lovers.

    Being self-taught, he started the project almost just for fun about a fact which happened in Scano Boa, a thin, 5 kilometers long, sandy island full of mediterranean flora, the last one to separate the Po river delta from the Adriatic sea.

    60 years later, Lamberto Morelli is the sole survivor of that troupe.
