An Italian on the road comedy set in the July sun, a voice coming out of a car, the same stretch of highway for many people who, unknowingly, share emotions and moments of their lives. #porvenir, the future is happening when you drive miles of road. The Lives of Others are seen between the highway and traffic jams: brief accidental contacts with other lives. Nodes intersecting at the speed of snapshots scattered in a forgotten social network. Ephemeral #selfies, polaroids tracing people and characters.
The kid Niccolò is traveling with his father and grandmother, they’re going to a First Communion ceremony. They meet a whole bunch of hilarious characters engaged in all sorts of semi-legal deeds. They all share a stop at a motorway cafè, a few miles of highway, a slice of life, dreams, emotions, fears and laughter. #porvenir is the unfocused gaze of a child on a series of lives that shoot past him, on stories somehow crossing his path. It is an unusual point of view to tell a modern tale that reinterprets and updates many ideas of the great classic Italian comedy, revealing a society of monsters, vices, virtues and feelings.
