Produced by Leonardo Baraldi, this lovely little film tells the story of Nicola Moruzzi’s discovery that his great-grandfather died in the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Connaught Tunnel in 1915, leaving gnawing gap in his family history
“Nobody knew what had happened to him during his immigrant journey, until I discovered his letters to Anna, his young beloved wife,” says Moruzzi, who stars in and also directed this film. “Thirty months before the accident, when Angelo left Italy, she was carrying his baby: my grandmother. Sadly, they never met again.”
After reading Angelo’s letters, Moruzzi decided to follow his ancestor’s fateful journey from rural Italy, with his girlfriend Irene. They went from Italy to Vancouver, then Kamloops and finally Revelstoke, where Angelo is buried. A grave nobody had visited for hundred years.
