Experiencing Interruptions?


The protagonist, a young woman who is the daughter of Sicilian emigrants, lacks the fundamental paternal figure, who died prematurely. Because of this experience, she feels the fascination of nostalgia for places, out of time, and of people who in her homeland (Sicily) bring her back to the improbable adolescent search for a companion, much older than her. This person will appear to her as a substitute figure for her charismatic and successful father, ultimately compensating for her own emotional insecurities.
This, at first, will take her away from an interior and loving balance, making her alone, as a victim of an idealization, precisely: “a fantastic mistake.”
After so many amorous failures, however, there will come a turning point that will take her back to the centre of her life.

Director Biography - ARRIGO MUSTI

Arrigo Musti
visual artist

He was born in Palermo, Sicily, in 1969.

At the age of 28, he felt that his original passion had remained latent and was determined to study, self-taught, painting techniques and human anatomy. So he left the legal profession once and for all.

He has participated in numerous personal and group exhibitions in contemporary art galleries, and museums in Italy, France, the Netherlands, England, and the United States.

In 2008 Christie’s auctioned some paintings by Arrigo in Holland, The Hague.

Nel 2009 year a personal exhibition, “Rain” was presented by Maurizio Calvesi, was run at Wright State University, Ohio, USA. Calvesi defined his works “… a new page in painting and not only Sicilian.”

In 2011, he participated in the 54th Venice Biennale - Venice Arsenal - on a choice, as best

Italian artist, by the, Oscar-winning film director Giuseppe Tornatore.

Catalogues of Arrigo Musti's works are present in many bookstores (Mondadori and Feltrinelli) and libraries around the world, including the Yad Vashem library in Israel (Impop Art).

His works have been the subject of numerous exhibition catalogues and have been reviewed in Italian and international art and design magazines, monthly and daily newspapers, and dozens of Italian and foreign publications, including one by UNESCO and “The Washington Post” about his Origin exhibition at the Watergate Gallery in Washington D.C. USA in november 2018.

Director Statement

I have always loved cinema.
I studied cinema as a young man.
Then, for many years, I applied some of his tricks in art.
Today I try ito use what I learned, doing painting, in cinema.
Surely painting taught me to work with images.
A Fantastic Mistake, short movie, is truly very biographical.
Sicilians look like Dubliners (by J. Joyce).
This is why they are, always with emotions, in their island, so much as they are emigrated all over the world
