BERNI AND THE YOUNG PHARAOH

Category: Edition 2019

Synopsis
Ram, a boy of three thousand years, descendant of the powerful dynasty of Pharaoh Ramses, is catapulted into the chaotic contemporary world. A teenager who had been educated to be revered and to govern finds himself treated as a freak. Berenice - a young girl who always feels out of place - finds herself involved in a distant and mysterious Egyptian prophecy: with her blood, she awakens a mummy in the Egyptian museum of Turin. Together, the two teenagers will live an exciting adventure, full of fantastic elements and references to the history of ancient Egypt.

Director's statement
"I worked to create the story I wanted to see when I was 8, with adventures, fear, kisses, exciting memories and puzzles to solve. In this film, the audience will find a real villain who is scary. All the artistic choices were guided by a deep and sincere respect for a very young audience. I wanted to deal with complex themes with great sincerity and passion, without any childish winks".
