Film Project "The Sunflower Inn"

La Locanda dei Girasoli“ (The Sunflower Inn) in Rome serves great food. But there is one difference from other Roman pizzerias: most of the staff have Down's Syndrome. 
This 40-minute film observes a special corner of the Italian capital where ordinary human beings achieve the extraordinary. We witness a life-giving experiment in integration – moving, funny and somehow heroic. We enter into the interior worlds of the characters to share their joys, sorrows and dreams for the future; dreams that sooner or later will be confronted with the realities of the outside world.

Expected release: February 2016

Current Film Project "Roads to Healing"

In the Western world the process of healing is often reduced to dosing patients with drugs and rationalising a course of treatment. This 30-minute film takes a holistic approach, exploring some of the factors which contribute to the healing process, including the power of self-regulation and belief. 

Expected release: April 2015
