Sicilian Ghost Story

by Fabio Grassadonia, Antonio Piazza New World View: Italy

In a small Sicilian village, 13-year-old Giuseppe disappears without trace. The kidnapping is meant to silence his father, a former Mafioso who now collaborates with the police. As the weeks pass without any sign of life from Giuseppe, life in the village returns to normal. Only Giuseppe's classmate Luna refuses to accept his disappearance. In order to find him, she descends into the dark world that swallowed him herself. Oscillating between true crime drama and fairytale, and filled with imagination and empathy, SICILIAN GHOST STORY picks up on the widely discussed atrocity of organised crime that shook Italy in the 1990s.
