THE HOST / L'OSPITE
"Sergio is a screenwriter over 50 in crisis: reality always surpasses fantasy and no longer knows what to invent. The pandemic forces him into domestic confinement in solitude and the fear of contagion makes him paranoid.
Until a funny little man knocks on his door, the virus himself who places himself on the sofa, an unwelcome and intrusive guest.
The long forced coexistence is very complicated, but as the days pass it also becomes an opportunity for confrontation and confrontation. Is it a nightmare or is it reality?
"THE HOST" is a comic short film, which ironically tackles the most thorny issues raised by the Covid19 epidemic, in a surreal, grotesque and dreamlike atmosphere. It is also a way to satire on all the consequences and our behavior in this period, without forgetting the grief and pain it caused.
Finally, an opportunity to review the evocative and already historical images of a deserted Bologna during the lockdown."
