Taking a leap of faith, leaving their city lives, families, careers, friends, and goals behind, nine courageous international women believed in love, and in themselves, enough to reinvent their lives along the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Digital video and super 8 weave together while the women's voices carry the film, telling the stories of meeting their love, their choices involved in moving to Italy, the expected and unexpected compromises, and the search for a comfortable balance. As the fantasy veneer of Mediterranean village life wears thin, and beauty recedes to inaccessibility, their own desires and senses of self are called into question, becoming mysterious even to themselves. A film by Lana Z Caplan with original score by Kevin Micka (aka Animal Hospital) and Chris Brokaw. Made with generous support from The Wexner Center for the Arts. Featured this month in its entirety (50 min) on PBS online www.worldcompass.org as part of the series The Journey. DVDs available for purchase: http://lanazcaplan.com/sospira.html
