In a little Sicilian village at the edge of a forest, Giuseppe, a boy of 13, vanishes. Luna, his classmate who loves him, refuses to accept his mysterious disappearance. She rebels against the code of silence and collusion that surrounds her, and to find him she descends into the dark world which has swallowed him up and which has a lake as its mysterious entrance. Only their indestructible love will be able to bring her back along.
“Sicilian Ghost Story takes its inspiration from real events. On 23 November 1993, Giuseppe Di Matteo, son of the Mafia “supergrass” Santino Di Matteo, is kidnapped by a gang of Cosa Nostra to make his father stop cooperating with the authorities. But his father does not stop. And Giuseppe languishes for 779 days and nights in the hands of his Mafia captors. Giuseppe is a ghost trapped inside a story with no possibility of redemption. A ghost to be freed. The only way to do it was for us to create a collision between a level of reality and a level of fantasy. The starting points for a Sicilian ghost story and, as such, on the level of reality, a dark fable. And, as such, on the level of fantasy, a romantic fable.”
