It's been a morbid time for "the country's leading musical satirist" (The Times); he's turned 46 - over the hill by anyone's standards - his personal life is in turmoil, and his childhood heroes are dropping like flies. At times like these, a man feels the Reaper creeping up on him… But is death anything to fear? And is it really the end? (Yes. Yes, it is, sorry!) Mitch confronts his - and YOUR - mortality with hilarious (and tuneful) consequences. Join him! It's time you're not getting back!

Liberami (dir.Federica Di Giacomo)
In Italian with English subtitles.
Every year, in Italy, in Europe and in the world, a higher and higher number of people affirms to be possessed by the Devil. The Catholic Church responds to this situation training more and more priests in the practice of exorcism . The veteran Father Cataldo is one of them. Gloria, Enrico, Anna and Giulia follow Father Cataldo’s mass looking to be rid of their 'condition', for which they’re not able to find either labels nor answers. LIBERAMI is the story about the modern practice of exorcism and the affected people’s everyday life: the contrast between ancient traditions and modern habits, between sacred and profane, meets in this astonishing documentary and reveals itself to be, at the same time, disturbing and hilarious.
