SCREENPLAY AWARD WINNERS
Paolo Taddei’s Screenplay for OBSCURITY
is the OIFF 1st place Screenplay Award Winner
A young photographer is slowly losing his sight because of a degenerative illness.
He obsessively pursues a last task: he follows the lives of a small group of people frequenting a betting shop,
taking pictures in secret. One day he witnesses a robbery- committed by one of them- and he takes a picture.
The last photo moves his imagination, breaking through the obscurity gradually surrounding him.
He imagines possible consequences and how the money may have influenced the lives of these people, including his own.
An obsessive-compulsive dog walker mails letters to those with the same name as her absent father;
and builds an unlikely relationship with the lonely transit worker who answers in STAY Written by Michele Dagle.
OIFF Short Screenplay 1st Place Winner.
