L'Immigrato

Three brothers, South Italy, WW2.

Some things can not be dreamt away and nothing will ever be the same for them again.

This short film was shot on location in South Italy with a micro-crew. The biopic is a powerful snippet into the harsh lives of a generation forced to abandon their childhood and dreams.

Written and Directed by Sophia Capasso, the film was heavily inspired by her Nonno. The piece was shot in Alife, Campania -the village Capasso's family originates from- and is influenced by that forgotten landscape. The area, like hundreds of others around the world, still hasn’t recovered from the devastation of war. 

Capasso and DOP Jan Solberg worked over several months of pre-production to find locations in and around Alife. They also found boys from the village to play the brothers. As we were shooting a film about a forgotten place and people, it felt vital to the team to showcase and involve the local community.

With regards to the shoot the team had 5 days, a micro-crew, a goat and a dedicated team!

 

The biopic is live action, composed music, voice over and archive footage of the area during WW2 which was sourced from John Huston’s films and the US Army Pictorial Services.
