Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2015

Lorenzo, Blue and Antonio have a lot in common: age (sixteen years), the same class in the same high school in a small town in the Northeast Italy, families that love them; all of them, though for different reasons, have come to be isolated from other kids. UN BACIO is a film about adolescence, first time and the pursuit of happiness, but also about bullying and homophobia, the patterns that prevent, especially boys, to find the way of own happiness.
