Corpo celeste

Corpo Celeste is the first feature film from Italian documentary filmmaker Alice Rohrwacher. This coming-of-age tale follows feisty thirteen-year-old Marta who has returned to the grey urban sprawl of Reggio Calabria with her family after they have spent ten years living in Switzerland. Marta is struggling to come to terms with her new, dour surroundings and in an effort to make friends with the local kids is sent to catechism classes, where she further explores her Catholic faith.
