Little Red Riding Hood

It is the 1990s, in a small village on a plateau bordered by mountain ridges.
A little girl is invited by her mother to take some foodstuffs to her flu-ridden grandmother who lives on the other side of the forest.
While she’s walking along the path, the girl plays and she is distracted by the local plants and animals. All along the way there is a mysterious figure hiding among the bushes.
At a crossroads, the girl meets a gamekeeper. At the end of a brief conversation, the man, noticing the girl's cape, greets her affectionately and calls her Little Red Riding Hood.
Finally arriving at her grandmother's house, she does not find her and she is overcome by the presence of an individual who attacks her. A fourth mysterious individual intervenes to defend the girl.
The day ends with the intervention of the police and a reunion between mother, child and grandmother. Who is the executioner and who is the saviour?

Writer Statement

In the art of screenwriting, my passions for the visual arts and writing come together. I am passionate about this form of expression, because it allows to translate any story or thought, ranging from fantasy, information, experiences or lived emotions, into moving images.
I like to think that the role of the scriptwriter is to be found 'behind the scenes', which is the position I find myself in the theatre thanks to my profession: from experience I know its importance and fascination.
