"A film not to be missed' EMPIRE ITALIA
PLOT: Young cellist Maria is disappointed by the ruthless music industry and returns to her native village in the Alps, a small and isolated community where an ancient language is still spoken: Cimbric. Maria gets in touch with the famous local male choir that her grandfather used to be part of it, but now not much remains of its past glory. Quirino is the only one who still fights for the choir’s survival as he dreams of a singing contest that will let them rise to prominence again. In order to do this, he asks Maria for help. She accepts the challenge as she wants to find a new way to make music again.

Renzo Carbonera, born in Latisana, near Udine, directed and wrote several historical documentaries; his short La penna di Hemingway premiered at the 2011 Venice Film Festival.

About Resina, Carbonera stated: it is a film about music, climate change, and the conflicted relationship we have with beauty. It is a film about a young woman in the world of men. It is a film that rediscovers a small mountain community that boasts a long history and a rich cultural tradition that risks disappearing into obscurity: the cimbric language.
