This film will be available from January 28th, 2PM to February 7th, 11:59PM.

Behind the windshield of a small car, in a cabin full of objects, Massimiliano is immersed in the reading of a book. Inside he eats, sleeps and dreams. Constellations of photos, shot with his old cellphone, weave together the experience of living on the street with that of his inner life. Massimiliano lives in the belly of his car, but will he dare to come out and turn the page of his own book when he’s due to receive an important inheritance?

In una piccola automobile colma di oggetti, Massimiliano è immerso nella lettura di un libro. Lì dentro mangia, dorme e sogna. Costellazioni di fotografie, scattate da lui con un vecchio telefonino, intrecciano la sua vita quotidiana con quella interiore. Massimiliano vive per strada, nel ventre della sua macchina; ma avendone la possibilità ce la farà a uscirne e a voltare pagina? Premio Tënk all’ultima edizione del Festival dei Popoli.
