Nour Gharbi | Italy | 2021 | 14'
With the tones of a folk tale and a hint of irony, the film tells the story of Amira, a little Moroccan girl in Italia with a birthmark on her face. Because of her appearance she is marginalized by the other children and all she wants is to have a friend. One day, her father takes her to choose a sheep. Amira looks after it with love but she will soon understand the fate reserved for the animal.
