After being presented last year in Panorama Italia in Alice nella Città, it arrives today in Italian cinemas (distributed by Istituto Luce Cinecittà) Body against bodyMaria Iovine’s documentary starring Veronica Yoko Plebani: here are trailers and official photos.
This is the summary of the movie:
Veronica Yoko Plebani is an athlete of the Paralympic National Triathlon. At the age of 25, she has a dream in her heart: the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. She was just 15 when bacterial meningitis dragged her into a life-and-death struggle for months, leaving her with a body scarred forever.
Graduated in political science with a thesis on the rights of athletes.
Ambassador of undisputed body acceptance with thousands of followers from Instagram to newspaper covers. Pose, even nude, for internationally renowned photographers and crush any canon of beauty.
Body to Body is the portrait of an athlete, but above all of a young woman who did not stop at her limits. It is the unconscious emancipation of femininity that excludes the judgment, which knows no normality or diversity.
It’s another broken story. At the age of 15, a bacteria came to spoil Veronica’s plans. A step away from the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, ranked fourth among all athletes in the world in its specialty, a virus has arrived. But she has a plan to fight back.
