Edoardo De Angelis – alongside the very same Abbate, Serena Brugnolo and Adriano Chiarelli.

Rosa is a restless and rebellious girl who lives with her grandmother and uncle in a Calabrian village, nestled between mountains and dry rivers. Her daily life is suddenly upturned by a matter which resurfaces from her past, a trauma which inextricably links her to her mother’s mysterious death. When Rosa realises her fate has all but been decided, she chooses to betray her family and seek out her own blood feud. But when your family is part of ‘Ndrangheta, each and every move can prove fatal.

“We couldn’t have found a more fitting international premiere”, Costabile enthused. “Una femmina - The Code of Silence is a film where the violence enacted upon women’s bodies is central to the story. Rosa’s story is that of many women who rebel against an all but decided fate. It’s an honour for me to make my debut in a festival which is so sensitive to gender politics”.

The cast includes Lina Siciliano, Fabrizio Ferracane (whom we’ll also be seeing in Paolo Taviani’s film Leonora Addio [+lee también:
