RODICAS wins the FIRST PRIZE at Siciliambiente Festival. We are very happy!

«For the beauty of the two protagonists and for the respect shown in directing such young over-80-year-old women, whose strength we’d all love to have. For the cinematographic narration that outlines two very intense lives and for the delicacy with which important topics such as death, sorrow and joy are tackled. A debut film of great sensibility
