Sicilian Holiday

On her upcoming film Sicilian Holiday, award-winning screenwriter and producer Michela Scolari is collaborating with Academy Award-winning producer Adam Leipzig. After filming in Sciacca, Sicily, was finished, the movie is now in post-production.

Mia and Nino, two troubled souls with more in common than the audience initially believes, are the focus of Sicilian Holiday. Mia, an actress in her late twenties, is stuck on an island in southern Italy by herself, looking for a way out of her unfulfilling life. In his mid-thirties, Sicilian sculptor Nino he works in an old-world craftsman studio and comes to Mia’s guide. The film also focuses on other couples on the island who are negotiating their romantic lives and discovering themselves as they help her find a job and a place to stay as their relationship grows, which is complicated by the arrival of Nino’s brother Phil.

Sicilian Occasion is a Sicilian dream-story become fully awake, an “accidental romance” about individuals that mend their previous pain so they can move to new lives. It’s a modern tale with a touch of the past.
