Director Statement

Created during the film residency “Kino Guarimba” in Amantea, Southern-Italy, “Marino” portrays a young and untypical italian boy who is facing the challenges of growing up. Social acceptance and the feeling of being part of a group are very important for children. Hierarchy also plays a major role, as the oldest is very often the leader of the group. However, if there is an emergency, one will understand very quickly who has real qualities.
Marino wants to join the adventures of his older brother. So the trip he is planning represents a courage test: At first, the three have to steal the boat of old Zu Peppino and then, they might discover something forbidden - the legendary nudist beach.
Marino undertakes a trip through the Ulysseus waters and is looking for an exciting world in order to escape the protection of his mother.
