“Goodnight Sofia” by Leonardo Moro

30th October
synopsis: 

A girl, after suffering a serious loss, goes trough the empty streets of a town far away.  She’s alone and hurt. Where is she from? What is she looking for? The sounds and lights of the city take her into a journey within herself, at the roots of her pain

director’s note: 
Goodnight Sofia is the story of a voice lost forever. A voice full of  life and projects. My father’s voice.The last memory I have of him, or at least the sharpest, is linked to Sofia and to his voice. It’s a small memory, but it’s the only one I have. A phone call, which lasted five or six minutes; I was passing through Sofia after a trip to Istanbul, he was home. Everything was normal, as usual.My father took his own life two months later.For a long time I asked myself  how could i save him. Why I did not understand? For a long time i wasn’t able to look at pictures of  him or to pronounce his name. I felt betrayed and abandoned.I went back to Sofia to look for his voice, in those streets that he had never seen. Far from home, far from everything. I started from the end to find him.The present, in the film, is represented by a lonely girl in a ghost town. The past is the recall of an imaginary childhood, almost magic, through my childhood, cinema’s childhood, Sofia’s childhood, and the childhood of other families far and lost.Goodnight Sofia is not a film on my father. Goodnight Sofia is a film for my father.
