‘Italy, Texas’ is a film that examines our relationship with the wild souls with whom we share our lives. Animals, humans, the spirit of life itself; these souls are headstrong, they are untamable and they are a part of us. The story traces twenty-four electric hours in Italy, a different Italy. An Italy found in the heart of Texas, USA, named by the son of a man who, on his deathbed, dreamed of spending his last days in his motherland. Narrated by Hunter, one of the town’s inhabitants, the film focuses on the deep bond that Italy’s close-knit community shares with its animals, both tame and wild.
