LUCKY was awarded the ARCA CINEMAGIOVANI AWARD at the 42nd Annual Giffoni Film Festival.
Comments from the Jury:
“For having conveyed that through knowledge and understanding you can learn to talk the same language that is the language of sympathy and love, capable of morphing even racism into acceptance and tolerance and affection.
For having built a story made up of both silence and words, symbols and little gestures, escapes and returns through which the main character, notwithstanding his misfortune never fails to hope in a brighter future and happiness”
