DOCUMENTARY | 57′ | COLOR | DCP | 2020


Elia Moutamid is the director and protagonist of this story. After a few weeks spent in Morocco looking for places and stories for what he wanted to be his next film, Elia returns to Brescia, the city where he lives. The idea was to make a film about urbanization and the territory, without losing the relationships with humans, of course. During the elaboration of what has been observed and in search of the form of his next work, he is blocked by the pandemic that has shocked the whole world. Stuck in the house he starts an autobiographical journey by collecting his reflections. “Kufid” is Elijah’s diary, of his personal and family events told, at times, even with irony: an autobiographical film shot during the pandemic and not a film on the pandemic. A story that comes to terms with a virus that upsets lives, families and old habits but without undermining stereotypes and prejudices, thus leaving unresolved issues pending. To the many questions about the future, an answer: “Inch’Allah”.
