A wheelchair-bound boy (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR) spies on his neighbours from his bedroom window and witnesses a terrible attack. This is not his story. Italian filmmaker Carlo Ballauri weaves an intimate tale told on a huge scale, with impressive world-building and elaborate visual construction. Starring Virginia Newcomb, also on the Fantasia screen in this year’s terrific THE BETA TEST. – Mitch Davis
