After the global communication campaign #ByMyEpilepside, Angelini Pharma adds a new chapter to the story about epilepsy, with the aim of increasing awareness about this pathology, fighting stigma and improving the lives of those who suffer from it.
For the first time, in fact, the company is launching a short film to tell the story of epilepsy, aimed at raising public awareness and demonstrating to all patients and their caregivers that, with the right support, a better quality of life is now possible.
Lampi (lightenings) - this is the title of the short movie – tells the story of Viola, a 35-year old woman, trainer and former water polo champion, retired from competition after an accident of hers. As a matter of fact, Viola is able to emit lightnings from her body, especially from her hands. A feature that she cannot control, that she hates and that can occur at any time with very dangerous effects, especially inside a pool full of people, during a training session.
Her daily life is marked by the crises she experiences and that lead her to feel discomfort and emotional suffering. It will be an unexpected encounter with a mysterious man to arouse in her harmony, acceptance and a whole new feeling: hope.
The short movie Lampi will be premiered to the press on Tuesday, May 10; for the occasion, two events have been organized in Milan (Anteo Palazzo del Cinema) and Rome (Ara Pacis). The complete short film will instead be published on all our platforms on Wednesday, May 11 and will be both in Italian and with English subtitles.
