Questo film, vincitore di un Orso d’oro a Berlino nel 1998, ispirato dal romanzo “Il vino di Sorgo” di Mo Yan, é un opera che mescola momenti di arguto folklore con altri pieni di drammaticità e violenza.
Ciao! My name is Dominique. I’m Italian and I’m proud to be a mix. My father was an Italian chemical engineer and high school teacher, with Greek and Polish heritage. My mother is Haitian, she was high school language teacher, with Dominican, Spanish, French, Portuguese, African and Native American heritage. Being a mix makes me appreciate to want to understand different cultures and lifestyles. I grew up in Italy, lived few years in Haiti, travel around main European capitals, lived seven years in China, six in Spain and UK. Traveling makes me feel that we can learn something from every situation in every part of the world.
