Director Statement

Following the return of war to Europe and political instability in her beloved country, Anaïs Gasparini is currently writing a feature-length historical film in the service of peace. In this new project, she takes us on a three-generation family journey through the wars of 1870, 1914-1918 and 1939-1945. It's a film full of emotion and humanity, an attempt to stop the infernal loop of wars that punctuate history. With this film, she hopes to make people think and unite them in the cause of peace. So that the famous phrase "Never again", rooted in the experience of the Shoah, becomes a universal appeal for the times to come.
