MIRAGE A L’ITALIENNE by Alessandra Celesia, France 2013, 90’
“Are you looking for a job? Alaska is waiting for you”. The fates of five Italians intertwine thanks to this advert, which appeared in Turin during the economic crisis. They share the same need: to leave and go as far as they can. Lost in Yakutat, a no man’s land where time seems to have stopped, these men and women make an interior journey together. A true adventure of friendship and solidarity showing how to live in spite of everything.

These three “brains” are on their way home, which is taking them back to Italy.
