Between Sisters

Spring Grant 2015 - Post-Production Stage

Manu Gerosa / Feature Documentary / Italy, Qatar / 2015 / 78 min / Colour / Original Language: Italian / Interests: Women, Coming of age, Creative Documentary


The two sisters Ornella and Teresa have cared for each other through their whole lives. Teresa is now in her life’s twilight and having problems facing fate, while her memory is slowly fading. Before it’s too late, Ornella decides to confront Teresa with a painful untold story that goes back to their childhood and might change their close bond forever. The film is a warm portrayal of an Italian family, seen through the eyes of Ornella’s son, Manu. With humour and tenderness we discover how time forces us to look behind us and confront ourselves with the choices we have made in life.
