THE RECALL OF THE SONGBIRD (9', France, 2010, dir: Rossella Piccinno)
A woman crosses a forest whilst traveling through her memories. Seeing herself again as a child hunting with her father, she relives the terror of the gun shots and the desire to be accepted despite the fact that she was not a boy. For the first time she also sees her father with different eyes, understanding his loneliness and weakness. THE RECALL OF THE SONGBIRD is a film who talks about families, of the difficulty of growing up with the expectations and disappointment of expectations. It's a film about love which is sometimes played out between power and suffering.
