ALI' BLUE EYES - World Narrative Competition

by Claudio Giovannesi
ITALY 2012, 100 min.

Nader and Stefano: one is Egyptian but was born in Rome, the other is Italian and is his best friend. Nader’s girlfriend Brigitte is Italian too, but that’s exactly why the boy’s parents oppose their love. Alì Blue Eyes tells of a week in the life of an adolescent boy who thries to disobey the values of his family. Precariously balanced between being Arab or Italian, Nader, courageous and in love, will have to endure solitude, the streets, cold, hunger, fear and the loss of friendship, in the attempt to regain his own identity.
