Shun Li and the Poet (Io sono Li)
In Andrea Segre`s poignant debut feature, Shun Li is a softly spoken young Chinese immigrant. Her Chinese broker transfers her from a clothing factory in the outskirts of Rome to a new job in the small fishing community of Chioggia, in the Venetian lagoon - a city with a strong territorial identity in a region that has transformed from a land of emigration to one of immigration. There she manages a bar and serves the fishermen regulars in halting Italian.
