Silent Calabria

Grazia, an androgynous teenager, is the central character of South Is Nothing directed by Fabio Motto (Italy/France) 2013.


She lives with her troubled father in Southern Italy, occasionally visited by her grandmother.

Grazia mourns the loss of her brother Pietro and is resentful of the numerous secrets surrounding a community controlled by a powerful syndicate that sets the rules its citizens are expected to follow.

The film was one of the contenders for the 2014 New Directors Prize during the recently concluded San Francisco International Film Festival 57.
