During the COVID-19 pandemic Sami apparently calls a friend to tell her of a tragic episode.
This short film is a reflection on domestic violence, human rights, and the condition of women in all countries.
"I was inspired by a personal story: an old friend I met by chance after a long time told me about the abuse she was a victim of from her husband. She thought it was painful, but accepted it as a normal condition. I was shocked, and told her she needed to contact the police. I thought about the short talk we had for a long time. I really think the way she accepted this abuse, thinking it was normal, is a huge issue for many women.
This is something that needs to be changed, and the topic is really important to me. “My Name Is Sami” is a short for a bigger project. I feel responsibility as a female artist to make people think about the issue by confronting them with this piece." Daniela Lucato, Director
