Biography
Andrea Magnani (Rimini, 1971) lives between New York, Trieste and some other cities in the world. Following his degree in political sciences, he approached cinema in 2002 and worked as a screenwriter for film and for television. He subsequently decided to concentrate on direction, directing documentaries and short films – among them, Basta guardarmi (2006), selected at the World Film Festival in Montreal and at the Giffoni Film Festival, and Caffè Trieste (2009), selected at several festivals and awarded as Best Documentary at the Trieste Film Festival (Zone di Cinema). Easy is his first feature film and has been presented at Locarno Film Festival 2017 – Concorso Cineasti del presente.

Synopsis
Isidoro, known by everyone as Easy, is lonely and depressed. His career as a young go-kart driver was interrupted when he began to gain so much weight he was not able to get into the seat any more. So he went back to live with his mother, and now passes his days in front of the TV, eating diet food. One day, his brother Filo – brilliant and successful – turns up with a job offer for him. It is a simple job, just so he can get out of the house and finally be behind the steering-wheel again: he has to take a coffin from Italy to a small village in the Carpathians, in Ukraine. But this journey to an unknown land can turn out to be much more complicated than planned...
