The World (Without Me)
Saturday, February 3 @ 12.30PM
By Benedetta Cutolo
What would you do if one of your deceased relatives announces you, in a dream, that 2017 would be the last year of your life? What if, at the beginning of that same year, you are diagnosed with a chronic disease? Obliged to face the hypothetical fulfillment of her dream, filmmaker Benedetta Cutolo decided to confront one of the strongest taboo of the Western society: our fear of mortality. Inspired to find answers, she embarks on a journey where she finally finds an entire world ready to talk about death (well, more or less..).
