I'll be working on my project entitled Blau gelat pitufo. After fifteen years without seeing him, Lili accompanies her parents to visit her older brother. The visit leaves a bitter aftertaste that dismantles the idealised image she had of him. While having to deal with her parents' old age all by herself, she tries to find her own path beyond that which has been imposed on her by others.
The tranquility, seclusion and environment offered by Faber are indispensable ingredients for a complete creative stay. Faber has allowed me to immerse myself in my project, in addition to sharing a workspace with my colleagues at the Script Residence
