In bici senza sella (On A Bike Without Saddle)
Solange Tonnini et al, 2016, 1h 40m, Italian with English subtitles

Presented by San Diego Italian Film Festival

The much yearned-for permanent job! A true rarity these days in Italy. Aspiring to this unattainable dream, a cast of seven young characters face the merciless everyday battle for their future by coming up with new, extreme forms of survival. Between fake suicides and genuine miracles, they re-enact the acrobatic, irreverent quest for economic stability. The desecrating self-portrait of a generation willing to do anything to finally cross the finish line… but in the end? Will they be happy? Or will they keep bustling about? The main theme displays the unstable position of today’s youth, told first hand by seven young and debuting directors – with the need to laugh and cry about it.

Q&A discussion with actor Alessandro Giuggioli
