In competition at 34th Venice International Film Critics’ Week at 76th Mostra del Cinema di Venezia, Ferine is a contemporary horror drama about borders of human nature which reflects how willing we are to compromise and to accept our inner monster. Starring Anna Della Rosa (The Great Beauty) it tells the story of a strange woman who lives in an abandoned villa between civilized society and a wild forest. Something fierce and threatening is revealed in her behaviors, something connected with that forest, a place that hides the true nature of her actions.
