Meet the 2013 Sundance Filmmakers #54: Giorgio Diritti Searches for Hope in "There Will Come A Day"

Italian filmmaker Giorgio Diritti’s “There Will Come a Day,” a nominee for the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic award, contemplates the meaning of life in a journey through nature. The film follows a lost Italian woman as she embarks on a quest towards faith and self-realization with a nun in the Amazon rainforst.

What It’s About: In order to overcome the pain you experience in your life, you need to find the true meaning of life.

And So It’s Really About: It’s the story of an Italian girl who begins a physical and spiritual journey in the Amazon rainforest in order to discover the deep meaning of her life, while escaping from her sorrows. Through this experience she will be able to find new hope.

What was your single biggest challenge in bringing this to the screen? Almost 80% of the movie is shot in the Amazon rainforest with Brazilian actors. It was a great challenge, both logistically and financially, for an Italian production company to manage the production of the movie.

What will you expect of Sundance audiences? I have always wanted the audience to look at my movies as mirrors for themselves in which every single viewer can find his or her personal path to explore the story. In all my movies, as in this one, there is a big hope for mankind and its ability to innovate and believe in themselves, even in the most difficult situations.

What’s next for you? I’m working on a movie about young people and their relationships with the work world, especially related to the situation we are experiencing right now in Italy, where is very hard for them to find the job that they are searching for.

Indiewire invited Sundance Film Festival directors to tell us about their films, including what inspired them, the challenges they faced and what they’re doing next. We’ll be publishing their responses leading up to the 2013 festival.
