MY BROTHER CHASES DINOSAURS (2019, Italy)

A joyful and touching ode to imperfection and diversity, based upon a true story – that of 22-year-old Giacomo Mazzariol and his “special” family, told by the young man himself in the successful book of the same name – and falling somewhere between family movie and coming-of-age tale. The film was presented at the 16th edition of the Venice Film Festival’s Giornate degli Autori as a Special Event.
