Ketelhuis Expat

Mourning in the midst of the Italian and Slovenian mountains.

Italy, 1900. Agata decides to make a journey on her own through rugged Italy in search of redemption for her daughter. A mission not entirely without risk as a young woman in those days. Along the way she finds help from the wandering Lynx and together they defy the elements, prejudices and the enchanting but intimidating Italian landscape in search of a miracle for her baby.

Piccolo corpo is the first feature film by Laura Samani, who previously made a number of short films. The feature film debut had its world premiere in Cannes (Sémaine de la Critique 2021) and won ’the Italian Oscar’, the Premi David di Donatello, for best debutant director.
