In this stunning cinematic debut, young talent Fabio Mollo’s film is a beautiful coming-of-age story. Set in a small town on the coast of Calabria, 17 year-old Grazia is finishing school and working in her father Cristiano’s fish shop, which is threatened by the local economy. However, as she searches for answers about her brother’s mysterious disappearance, Grazia fights to shatter the code of silence governing life in her village, her family, and herself. Collecting applause from Toronto to Berlin, South is Nothing has situated Mollo as one of the most innovative voices in new art cinema.
