Early 20th century, Northern Italy. The Ughetto family, living through difficult times, dreams of a better future abroad. The story tells of Luigi Ughetto crossing the Alps to start a new life in France, thus changing the destiny of his beloved family forever. His grandson travels back in time revisiting their history.
Director Alain Ughetto: "At family dinners, my father used to tell us that there was a village in the Piedmont region of Italy called Ughettera where all the inhabitants had the same name as us. When he died, I went to see if this village existed. It did exist: Ughettera, the land of the Ughetto! My investigation began there, nine years ago."
A film of testimony, but above all, a film of love. No Dogs or Italians Allowed won the European Animated Feature Film Award 2022, The Annecy Jury Award 2022, and The Annecy Gan Foundation Award.
