During the COVID-19 pandemic Sami apparently calls a friend to tell her of a tragic episode.
This short film is a reflection on domestic violence, human rights, and the condition of women in all countries.
"I was inspired by a personal story: an old friend I met by chance after a long time told me about the abuse she was a victim of from her husband. She thought it was painful, but accepted it as a normal condition. I was shocked, and told her she needed to contact the police. I thought about the short talk we had for a long time. I really think the way she accepted this abuse, thinking it was normal, is a huge issue for many women.
This is something that needs to be changed, and the topic is really important to me. “My Name Is Sami” is a short for a bigger project. I feel responsibility as a female artist to make people think about the issue by confronting them with this piece." Daniela Lucato, Director

I started studying acting in Italy during the University. After my degree in Philosophy with a thesis in cultural anthropology about contemporary dance, I moved to Rome, Wellington and Berlin where I am still living and working as an actress/performer for theatre/film.
Since 2013 I started to write/direct. Call Me Reality (2013) is my first theatre piece. In 2014 I wrote and directed The Birthday, a short film in mandarin/english language(23 Official selections/1 Nomination).
In 2015 I founded Connecting Fingers Company. My last works: Connecting Fingers (2015) , the feature documentary When I dance(2016), For the time being (2018). For the Theatre Dance: The Wheel Performance and short(2017), The Rebellious Body(2018), Sex in Translation (work in progress) and Trilogy(Work in progress).
