Based on the pre-lockdown stats that every 12 hours in Italy someone commits a racist hate crime, this dark, atmospheric short, titled B-52, launched on The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (21 March).

It was created by The Big Now/mcgarrybowen for Amnesty International Italia and produced by The Big Angle and depicts a mixed race couple being watched by a mysterious loner who belongs to a social movement that punishes racial and cultural integration with violence.

The film takes its name from the cocktail named after the Boeing B-52 bomber, used by the US troops to drop napalm bombs during the Vietnam War. When the loner settles down to enjoy a spot of Vietnamese food the line between victim and perpetrator becomes blurred.
