Stories From The Chestnut Woods Zgodbe iz kostanjevih gozdov

Gregor Božič / Slovenia, Italy / 2019 / 81 min / Italian, Slovene / 16+

In a forested valley between Italy and Yugoslavia in the mid-20th century, a stingy widower befriends a young woman and helps her depart in search of a new life across the ocean. A chance encounter gives rise to a dreamy fairy tale on loss, regret and the power of imagination.
