Il Burattino tells the story of Tino, an orphan native to Varallo Sesia, in Northern Piedmont, Italy. Having always been perceived as the weaker one next to his older friend Romero, the boy is anxious to break away from his brotherly protection to carve out a life for himself. Tino finds hope in the idea of fighting against a Fascist Italy. His determination is successful in providing his strength, but at the cost of some heavy realisations.
We want to tell a story, that both honours the courage of the soldiers who fight for their
country, and despises war itself.
It is important to recognise that in the days we are living, as part of the west world, that there is a war happening in Ukraine. We may all be drafted from our comfortable homes, and be forced to join the army and fight for what others believe.
