Sleeping Close (Italy) by Giulio Pereno
In human adversities, there are 'topoi' that recur like variations of the same melody. Growth, pain, sacrifice, choices and, above all, love, are present in everyone's existence in a thousand forms, similar and yet unique. With the fragments of many lives, it would be possible to compose a single one in which to find the echo of all the others. In the chapters of 'Sleeping close', a woman experiences the stages of her own evolution through the changing features of fourteen female protagonists. She dies a symbolic death, only to be resurrected at the end with all those women who have gone before.
