Sebastiano Blu, 2018

A beautiful young man’s insatiable need for attention and obsessive thoughts and fears about women, lead him down a tormented and fatal path.

Giorgetto is handsome. He is the DJ. He still lives with his parents in his childhood bedroom and smells of soap, the smell of his loving mother. His powerful father is master of ceremony of the biggest party of the year, dedicated to San Sebas- tiano, Patron Saint of the village. Giorgetto’s earliest memories: as a crying baby, offered by his father to the Saint, and overhearing his mother and his aunt whispering: “poor Giorgetto, he may be sterile…”
