Venice Int'l Film Festival (Special Mention by Federazione Italiana dei Cineclub)

Late 1990s. A farm burnt down in the woodlands of Sardinia. Its manager Mario, the son of the farm owner Constantin (acclaimed Italian filmmaker Gavino Ledda – Padre Padrone), is the only casualty. Dressed as a shepherd, the devastated Constantin briefs the detectives about the events preceding the incident. It all started with Mario returning from Berlin with his wife Greta (Anna König – TV series Dark). The two of them decide to turn the farm into a tourist attraction offering authentic experience with Sardinian shepherds. This detective story is an adaptation of the eponymous novel by Giulio Angioni. The film won a special mention of the Federation of Italian Cinema Clubs at Venice Film festival. 

Salvatore Mereu (1965) is an Italian director and writer known for his award-winning feature debut Three-Step Dance (2003), about the relationship between tradition and modernity in Mereu’s native Sardinia. The film screened at the Venice Critics’ Week, taking home the main prize and the ISVEMA Prize for Best First Film. His second film, Sonetàula (2008), screened in the Panorama section at Berlinale. His film Pretty Butterflies (2012) won the Schermi di Qualità Award in the Venice Orizzonti section, as well as the Rotterdam Big Screen Award.
