Mancanza is a never written film.
A group of people meets in a hypothetic Heaven.
Poetry's mother is privation.
Mancanza is a film without a real structure. The script has been abolished in the making of the film. I have been driven by the necessity to use the doubt as a medium for the making of Mancanza.
About the film
The film is based of improvised situations. The main concept of the director Stefano Odoardi has been to place a group of people in a hypothetical Heaven and, in this context, to film the reactions and reflections caused by this extraordinary situation.

Directed by Stefano Odoardi
" A film impression in liberal form. The artistic project of Stefano Odoardi with virtually no plot – it is filled with confessions and reflections on life and dying, impassive, made by figures passing the screen. In the background there are indefinite places, colorful umbrellas which draw attention; all is wrapped in oneiric poetics bringing to mind the achievements of the pre-war film avant-garde.
The director declares that Lack is a film about love, which is: devoid of real structure and recognizable narration. By assumption it was completed without a screenplay, rejecting all film conventions, it became, in accord with the author’s assumption, a non-film film. The central idea of both the quasi-narration and the applied form of telling the story is doubt. The experimental work of the Italian director was recognized the best project in the Work in Progress category in 2009 at the Korean International Film Festival in Jeonju."
