Soutien de Famille is a cinematographical essay based on the artistic project Hogshead 733 that includes a journey, a sea adventure, a story of heritage, friendship & whiskey.

A portrait of Domenico Lucano, mayor of the tiny hilltop town of Riace in Italy’s far south, which has welcomed thousands of refugees over the last 20 years in a ground-breaking effort to help fight poverty and long-term decline.
Named as one of the world’s 50 greatest leaders by Forbes magazine in 2016, Lucano now stands accused of corruption and aiding illegal immigration. In an extraordinary move he has been exiled from his own town while the case is heard.
We follow Lucano as he battles electoral defeat at the hands of right-wing populists and savage political attacks from Italy’s combative Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini.

An intimate portrayal of an artist-welder. Mariola roams post-industrial areas with her faithful dog in search of scrap metal, which she uses in her artwork. During the welding process she creates terrifying sculptures of animals, androids and children affected by war. She fulfils her obsessive need to create art in spite of her painful hand condition. When the air quality in the city exceeds acceptable limits she, together with her family, travels to an uninhabited island, to wait out the difficult time in close contact with nature.
MARIOLA WAWRZUSIAK-BORCZ (1971) studied at the Faculty of Sculpture of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków in the years 1992-1997. She received a diploma with a distinction at the atelier of Professor Józef Sękowski. Currently she is an associate professor at the same Academy. Since her graduation she has been very consistent in her original approach to sculpture; her works are made of scrap metal which is subsequently welded. She is fascinated by the world of primeval instincts and atavistic impulses, the kingdom of animals, but also existential topics in which she tackles and tames universal human fears and anxieties. Her expressive sculptures of children can be frightening but also admirable. Presented with the greatest sensitivity, they do not allow for any indifference.
