Sguardi Altrove Film Festival (2021)
OFFICAL SELECION NON COMPETITION

Based in Italy. We are proud of all the festivals we've been Selected into; this one holds a special place in our heats because it's geared towards movies that have themes that show women in a positive and empower manor. Fonzi & I are very lucky and happy to have been raised by women who enlightened us. And we know our success is due to the many women that were in key positions in Eva's Comet.

EVA'S COMET STORY IS ABOUT:
Two broken women, both stuck in the past, opposite in almost every way, are thrust together and end up changing each others lives. 

It’s also a metaphor for how people on the left and right treat each other. Too often neither side having any compassion for the other side, too often judging someone in a negative light without knowing anything about that person, too often thinking one’s own pain is above anyone else’s.

But when you get to know someone personally, more often than not, you have empathy for them, you can learn from them and in doing so… you can heal many of your own wounds.
