The last patch of land – the last triangle of habitable space at the mouth of the Tiber. Its inhabitants call it Punta Sacra, Sacred Point. Realism and the imaginary constantly intertwine in this suburb of Rome, where Franca leads an all-female community. A family suspended between nostalgia and an inevitable pragmatism, constantly struggling between a strong sense of belonging and the lack of opportunities for the new generations.

Winner of the International Feature Film Competition 2020 at Visions du Réel
Bonus Content: An introduction video to Punta Sacra by the director Francesca Mazzoleni is available on Riff@home
