BWFF: Twin Flower (Fiore Gemello)


New England Premiere!

Directed by Laura Luchetti (Italy, 2018, 95 min). Narrative Feature. In Italian with English subtitles.

In writer-director Laura Luchetti’s strikingly photographed second feature, two teenage runaways forge a relationship haunted by their respective pasts. Anna (Anastasiya Bogach) is eluding a human trafficker for whom her father worked, and Basim (Kallil Kone) is a refugee from the Ivory Coast in search of gainful employment. Together they embark on a dangerous trip across the tough but breathtaking terrain of Sardinia in the hopes of overcoming their personal demons. The remarkable chemistry between Bogach and Kone—both nonprofessional actors—carries Luchetti’s powerful film about coming of age in the throes of the refugee crisis. — Description courtesy of Film At Lincoln Center.

“In her second feature, Italian filmmaker Laura Luchetti combines the tropes of growing up, the refugee crisis and a delicate relationship with remarkable sensitivity.”
– Vladan Petkovic, Cineuropa

“Bolstered by revelatory performances from its leads, and a timely thematic foundation appropriate to its place and moment, ‘Twin Flower’ tells a story that’s as nuanced as it is profound.”
– Warren Cantrell, The Playlist
