UMI Films, Rai Cinema and MIC have today released the first trailer and official artwork for AMUSIA. The film, directed by Marescotti Ruspoli, will celebrate its’ World Premiere at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival on November 18th.
AMUSIA from the Greek a-musia, meaning a lack of harmony, is a biological musical disorder that causes inability to process, understand and recognize music.
In a world saturated with music, AMUSIA tells the story of a girl who is born without the means to hear it. The disease is called Amusia. It exists but nobody knows about it and it tortures her but nobody believes it. She had a lonely childhood which she spent defending herself from accusations and prejudice. The disease, and lack of acceptance, push her to run away, finding herself in a forgotten suburban neighbourhood. There she befriends a boy who is fighting his own solitude through music as he tries to prevent his own dreams from rotting away.A love story between two people that turn out to be not so different after all.
