We all struggle with identity. What makes me, me? And perhaps the answer is so complicated our minds cannot wrap themselves around it. L’anima doesn’t have an answer. It answers the question with another question. L’anima muses on how maybe identity is partly made up of the places we have been.

Using this as the starting point Donatella Gasparro wrote a poem which Michael van Kraalingen adapted into a script. Reflecting Donatella her own struggles with being an Italian in our flat little country. If only we could raise our hands as the untitled protagonist does in l’anima and be whisked away to a place we used to call home. A distant memory.
