20 Cigarettes (2010) – Drama - 94 minutes
Director: Aureliano Amadei

This film is based on a true story and celebrates hope over desperation, life over death. In November 2003, Aureliano, 28 years old, is temporary employed and shifting through precarious relationships. Unexpectedly, he gets an offer to work as the assistant of film director Stefano Rolla and shoot a movie in Iraq, following the “peace mission” of the Italian army. Upon his arrival in Iraq, Aureliano hardly gets time to smoke a pack of cigarettes (20 cigarettes) before he finds himself in the center of a terroristic attack by a suicide bomber in the Nasiriyah military police HQ. He is the only civilian that survives the attack in which 19 Italians are killed. The film's strength lies in its ability to shift comfortably from comedy to drama without political rhetoric or trivializing its characters. Winner David Giovani 2011 (Academy of Italian Cinema);
