Quaranta cavalli - directed by Luca Ciriello  / Italy (2020)
Le scorribande estive di un gruppo di ragazzini di Chioggia, i loro sogni sull’acqua e le loro aspettative. Stefanin, il protagonista, è un tuttofare, un piccolo uomo che a 16 anni ripara motori e va a pescare vongole. Durante le sere d’estate, per divertirsi va in giro con tutti i suoi amici su barchini con motori da 40 cavalli, musica reggaeton ad alto volume e luci led decorative. Alle volte vanno in laguna a corteggiare le ragazze che li aspettano sulla banchina, altre volte fanno un ponte di barche in mezzo alla laguna e scommettono su chi pescherà di più il giorno seguente. Un mondo fatto di illusioni, ironia ed energia, ma anche di sogni e speranze per il proprio futuro.
