Director’s statement

“The story of Mileva is concentrated in a futuristic context, in which rubble and aridity have replaced nature and its fruits. Over time, man has managed to deface almost all of the life of the planet, to enclose himself in bare and abandoned territories. In this desolate climate and almost devoid of real emotions, Mileva will meet love. It will not be the usual love that we all know, but a contradictory, impetuous one, which rejects itself and does not recognize itself. Almost an upside-down journey for the two female figures: Titti is in fact walking towards the disappearance of feelings and joy. The inner devastation [...] The screenplay tries to analyze the boundary between the protagonist's reality, her daily life, and her imagination, contained in the comic and in the drawings that she creates. But this border, apparently impassable, is also overcome by the other characters in the film, who - through social media - pass from reality to what they would like to be, creating that virtual world known as "web reputation" [...] In front of this paradox, our story tries to find a parallelism. On one hand, the life between reality and fiction of the protagonist Titti, with the creation of an imaginary world in which her alter ego lives, on the other, all the characters in the film, who - in different ways - crossover reality to land in virtual worlds, created through social networks, in which to feel heroes."
