Fiori, Fiori, Fiori!, Luca Guadagnino, Italia, 2020, 12'
During the lockdown for the Covid-19 pandemic, Luca Guadagnino, with a small film crew, arrives to Sicily from Milan with just a smartphone and a tablet, to knock on the doors of his childhood friends and see how they lived through this exceptional time that brought the entire world together.
