Review

Between February and April 2020, director Andrea Segre got stuck in Venice during the lockdown: Venice, the hometown of his father and just partially his own. At the time, he was working on two theatre and movie projects about threats to the city: tourism and high water. During the filming, the virus froze and emptied out the city before his eyes and gave back the town to its own nature, history, and somehow, also to Andrea. He collected visual notes and stories and spent time in his family home, where he got the chance to dig into the childhood memories that dragged him deeper down than he could have ever imagined. The personal archives on super8 of Ulderico, father of the director, alternate with encounters with Venice residents, both telling the relationship between the city, and the waters and at the same time living the unexpected void that took over Venice and a big part of the world. The images are held together by the director’s out-of-field voice, the music by Teho Teardo and an atmosphere of expectation and amazement which pervades all the visual and existential material of this strange journey, unreal and unrealizable but remaining in the heart of a very real and historical event which has marked and will mark the world forever.


In Italian with English subtitles. Available only in the US.

We are excited and eager to get back to in-person events and screenings with you. In order to keep our patrons, staff, and volunteers safe, San Diego Italian Film Festival’s current health and safety requirements are as follows:

We are a fully vaccinated organization.
All staff and volunteers present at our screenings and events are fully vaccinated. In order to enter the theater or any venue hosting our events, guests need to have photo ID and either their physical CDC vaccination card or an official government-provided digital vaccine record, with at least 14 days elapsed from the date of final dose. Trained individuals will review your proof of vaccination as you arrive.

Children under the age of 12, for whom there is no currently available vaccine, will not be permitted to attend our events regardless of the vaccination status of their guardian. As soon as children under the age of 12 become eligible to receive a vaccine, fully vaccinated children will be welcomed back.

There will be no exceptions to this policy.


Face masks: Face masks may be required depending on the CDC guidelines at the time of the screening or event. Guests are strongly encouraged to wear an approved mask as much as possible while indoors.
