Italian association of filmmakers ZaLab and British sales house Videoplugger are delighted to announce that Sharp Families has been picked up in a deal with London Live, to be broadcast on the channel.


Sharp Families (52′)

This is a journey through London, guided by… knife-grinders. An insight into an unusual business and a story of successful immigration – from the Italian Dolomites to England – Sharp Families contributes to our knowledge of societal changes. Sharp families is the result of the director Patrick Grassi’s one-year-long research, among the Italian community in London and their native Dolomites.
