On the bride’s side

sposa 250

A three-thousand-miles journey from Milan to Sweden by a group of Palestinians and Syrians fleeing the war turns into a mock wedding, complete with a bride and the guests.

"What border policeman would stop a wedding procession to ask for the bride's documents?"

The journey unfolds across the armored borders of half of Europe and becomes a movie, “On the bride’s side”, “a fantastic but damningly true story."

A crowdfunding campaign is launched in order to raise 150.000 euros to fund the costs of production and post-production and to finish the project in time to present it to the Venice Film Festival and distribute it in theaters this fall.
