Director Michela Occhipinti's 'Flesh Out' Makes the Lineup of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival



One Italian is in the official line up of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, which was announced today. Flesh Out directed by Michela Occhipinti follows Verida, a modern girl. She works in a beauty salon, is addicted to social media and hangs out with her friends. Still, she is engaged to be married to a man chosen by her family, and like many girls her age, she is forced to gain a substantial amount of weight in a tradition called gavage, because in Mauritania having a voluptuous body is considered a sign of great beauty, charm, wealth and social status. The wedding is fast approaching and meal after meal Verida will end up challenging everything she always thought was normal, her loved ones, her life and even her own body.

Click here for the complete lineup. The Tribeca film festival runs April 24 - May 5.
