Type of project: Short film

Category: Director

Description: The Great Mother Dreaming is an experimental documentary that deals with the psychological condition that follows a dramatic events.

In 1980 southern Italy, and mostly Irpinia region, was struck by a terrible earthquake which destroyed most of the villages and seriously affected the main city Avellino.
