Directed by Roberto Minervini

Italy 2015 92 mins.

“By turns tender and disturbing, Minervini’s powerful docu-fiction hybrid profiles people living on the fringes of society. While they essentially play themselves, he clearly intervenes to create situations rather than observe them. Following his superb Texas-based Stop the Pounding Heart [PIFF 38], Minervini moves to Louisiana, where we come face-to-face with a group of people who seem to have stepped out of Deliverance. Faces carry the lines and scars of hard living, clothes are tattered, living conditions are chaotic. Some are addicts; others are libertarian fanatics. Yet Minervini finds a compassion and tenderness behind their gruff exteriors as he peers into corners that many Americans choose to ignore.”—Toronto Film Festival. In English. Adult.
