Italy 2020, 76 min, English and Italian, Hebrew & English subtitles

Pippa Bacca believed in people. When she hitchhiked all the way from her home in Milan to Jerusalem—crossing 11 war-ridden countries while wearing a wedding dress—her vision was to make a powerful piece of performance art about renewal and peace.
But when she reached Turkey, her journey came to an abrupt, tragic end.
Pippa Bacca (feminist Italian artist Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo) grew up in an unusual home: her mother raised five daughters on her own and hitchhiked with them across Europe, sending the girls off in separate cars. Her path as an artist was shaped by the values she had learned at home: feminism, humanism, and openness.
The film tells her story using her memories, her art, and the inspiring photographs of her journey for peace, the last journey she ever took.
With the support of the Italian Institute of Culture.
