Nobody wants to leave Ostia, a small Italian village at the mouth of the Tiber river. However, the illegally built houses which are home to some 500 families are being threatened with destruction. Thus, the town becomes a point of resistance for a community that expresses its right to live there.

MUBI's take

While celebrating 100 years of Pasolini, we’re taken with the poignant realism of Punta Sacra—a film that takes place on the very ground where he last existed. Capturing life with graceful intuition, documentarian Francesca Mazzoleni pays joyful tribute to an unheard yet resilient humanity.
