In Made in Italy, the young filmmaker Fabio Wuytack discovers an old film which was shot more than 100 years ago in Carrara, Italy, by the inventors of cinema, the Lumière brothers. Fabio decides to bring the film back to the charming little marble city where even Michelangelo came to select marble for his sculptures. With the help of a sinister cinema owner, some rough mineworkers, an enthusiast old priest and other fascinating characters, he tries to find the mythical location where the Lumière brothers filmed. The result is an Italian journey full of commedia del’arte that brings Fabio closer to his roots than he could ever have imagined.
