About the Film:
This marvelous film is inspired by the true story of Mirco Mencacci, one of the most gifted Italian sound editors working today, who happens to be blind. Born in a small village in Tuscany, in 1971, Mirco is a bright, lively 10-year-old, crazy about the movies - especially Westerns and adventure films. Mirco is blinded in a freak accident, but that doesn’t stop him from finding a brand-new world of creativity. This unusual tale will lift your heart and inspire you.
