Luna piena Full Moon

Directed by Isabella Torre
Italy 2020
Runtime 15'

A sudden and inexplicable event interrupts an interview that a TV crew is conducting with Lina, a famous actress in a villa in Calabria. Waking up after a short sleep, Lina finds herself alone. The crew has disappeared, the water in the pool is now covered by a layer of slime, as if contaminated. The world seems to have emptied out. There is only a small flock of goats wandering along a deserted beach under the moonlight.
