‘Girl in Flight’ is the story of an 11 year old Tuscan girl, Silvia, whose home life is dominated by her mother’s depression. Hoping for a break, Silvia pleads for a family trip to Rome. But when her father backs down yet again, she takes off on her own from their home outside Florence to fulfill her dream. Fearless and open to everything, Silvia meets up with a 13 year old gypsy girl, Emina, who takes her to her gypsy camp. Thus is born a complicated but sincere friendship. Shot in a real Roma camp with resident non-actors, Girl in Flight is a tender, frightening and exciting emotional journey based on events of first-time director Sandra Vannucchi’s real life.
