THE LAST TO SEE THEM (GLI ULTIMI A VEDERLI VIVERE)

Talent attending: Sara Summa (Director)

Loosely based on true events, this impressionistic film doesn’t focus on the aftermath of a family’s brutal murder nor the violent act itself. Instead, THE LAST TO SEE THEM centers on the 24 hours before an entire family is slaughtered. Since each of the subjects is completely unaware o his or her fate, even the most ordinary moments feel acutely ominous.  And as our oblivious family members careen towards their inevitable deaths, we watch them argue, love and even get bored – all the meaningless things in life that have no larger significance until it’s the last time one ever experiences them.  Before the unsuspecting demise, before tragedy, we are the last to see them. –Lane Kneedler
