Diary of a Serbian Housewife
Based on the novel by Mirjana Bobic Mojsilovic . Directed by Fiona Sansone , starring Ksenija Martinovic . Produced by CSS Teatro Stabile di Innovazione of Friuli Venezia Giulia.

Andjelka is a young woman whose urge to relive her memories leads her to retrace the steps of her life: her childhood spent in Tito's Yugoslavia, her adolescence and adulthood spent in Milosevic's Serbia. 

The story of an entire generation of young people living in war-torn regions who weren't ready to
become adults so soon.

BUTTEFLIES
by EMANUELE ALDROVANDI 
Translated by CARLOTTA BRENTAN
Directed by JAY STERN

BUTTERFLIES is about two sisters whose favorite pastime is a dangerous game: whoever holds the butterfly hairpin can ask the other one to do anything. Inspired by some of Pirandello's short stories, BUTTERFLIES is a tale of personal growth and sisterly love in which self-discovery is not always accompanied by greater understanding of the other person.
