Il mio corpo
By Michele Pennetta, 82 min.
In sicilian, sub ita.
In the presence of the director Michele Pennetta. 

Oscar – little more than a child – collects scrap metal for his father, who is in charge of reselling it. He spends his life in the illegal dumps where the scrap metal is deposited. At the other end of the spectrum we find Stanley. He cleans the village church in exchange for hospitality and some food. He picks fruit in the fields and takes the cattle out to pasture, just to keep his estranged body busy. Apparently very different from each other, Oscar and Stanley share a strong desire for emancipation.
