The Crossing (U S , 0:21: 00 )
Directed by: Nathalie Biancheri
Set in 1961 in Italy, The Crossing is the story of Eileen, a sixteen year old misfit who lives in a crumbling, decadent family villa with her slightly psychotic mother, obsessed with their financial difficulties. She is at the awkward age between child and adult when you have a foot in both worlds but feel like you don't belong to either. The only place she really feels comfortable in is the sea, where each day she spends hours and hours swimming. When a journalist convinces her to swim the English channel Eileen sees it as a way to escape her home and establish her place in the world -but the journalist has a different agenda.
