Dear Shaded Viewers,
WHen I was in Sicily I met Ivana Markovic, in fact she had invited me on a press trip. One night when I was answering my e mails in the office, Ivana came by and showed me this film that her daughter did by and of herself at the age of 17. She is currently on a scholarship studying in a conservatory in London. When her mother asked her why everything was so fast in the film, she replied because that was what her life was like. I was quite amazed at her work.
