HOME RUN. New Cinema from Austria

Abandoned in a park, the two-year-old girl Asia is found by Patrizia, a circus woman living with her husband Walter in a trailer park in San Basilio on the outskirts of Rome. With the help of Tairo, a teenager who lives with his grandma in an adjacent container, Patrizia starts to search for the girl's mother and gives the girl a new home for an uncertain period of time. La Pivellina is a film about a cosmos of outcasts in present-day Italy: a moving tale of courage and discrimination, of loss and togetherness, a look behind the corrugated-iron fence of a gated community.

Before the opening film the Viennale-09-Trailer: Fire & Rain will be screened.
