Girl in Flight - La fuga

a film by Sandra Vannucchi

Based on a true story, GIRL IN FLIGHT – LA FUGA is about 11-year old Silvia (Lisa Andreozzi), a confident, headstrong girl from a small town in Tuscany, whose life at home is consumed by her mother’s clinical depression. Her dream is to see Rome with her parents, but when it looks as though they’ll never have time to take her, she boards a train to Rome all by herself. On the train she meets a Romani girl. She follows her through the streets of Rome to her gypsy camp.

Shot in a real Romani camp with mostly amateur actors, the film also features the Italian film stars Donatella Finocchiaro and Filippo Nigro as the protagonist’s parents. Its mesmerizing images by award-winning cinematographer Vladan Radovic (Donatello Award for Anime Nere (“Black Souls”), 2015) reflect the tenderness and excitement, the joys and fears, of a young girl coming of age on an emotional journey of self-discovery.
