The story is set in Venice and completely shot in the “undiscovered Venice”, the splendid city where historically, artistically – and romantically – East and West have met since time immemorial. “Pizza and Dates” tells the story of the lives in a small community of Middle Easterners living in Venice and their daily problems along the way to becoming integrated into Italian society. Bepi (Giuseppe Battiston), the Italian protagonist, represents the crossing between these two cultures. Saladin is a young man who has just arrived from Afghanistan. This first trip is his discovery of Venice, the sea, culture, food, and love. And this encounter grows complicated… with the charismatic presence of the beautiful Zara… From the director of the multi awarded and acclaimed “The Flowers of Kirkuk”.
