Short Fiction Film 14’53’’
Parcelpaedia is a film that responds to Italy Syndrome- a type of depression specific to Eastern European women who work as caregivers in Italy. The movie features Dr.Cara, a fictitious physician who examines parcels sent by these migrants to their families in Moldova. The movie creates an absurd world with its own logic, where objects are alive and active in the Moldovan-Italian migration.
