The encounter between a young writer and a blind woman inside the Temple of the Crowned, will awaken in him a childhood memory hidden far away in time, and will put him in front of the question of what it means to be an artist today.

Director Biography - Andrea Granata

Andrea Granata is a young Italian writer, in love with cinema since he was a child. His greatest mentors are Raymond Carver, Alan Moore, Ágota Kristóf and Federico Fellini. The first film, Tempio (2019), is a sensory and literary experience, thanks to the collaboration with the Italian Blind People Association. He believes that a film must be universal. Andrea likes the super8 film, the Beatles and the Tropea sea. His dreams are to open an independent production together with his friends and collaborators, Andrea Fontana and William Mazza, and to become a great director.
