Italy: Love It or Leave It

by Gustav Hofer, Luca Ragazzi International Documentary Film / Competition

Italy, land of desire and juicy lemons – or Italy, ruined land? Over the past several years, the two filmmakers Luca and Gustav have seen many of their friends move away. Sick of poor job prospects, the high cost of living and implausible politicians, the young have upped sticks and moved to Berlin, London or Barcelona. They obviously didn’t see a future in their homeland. In the search for reasons not to do the same, the two young men jump into their Fiat Cinquecento and set off on a road trip to discover their country. Where are the people who will rescue Italy? It takes them six months to finally answer the question: Italy, love it – or leave it?
