Includes Q&A with Producer/Director Sean Cisterna

“Cisterna has always had a good sense of story, it all has a genuine flow to it as we move along and it really has a strong sense of self. That kind of narrative confidence not only comes from the script, from the director leading the ship.” “ – David Voigt, IN THE SEATS


From the Vine is the heartwarming story of a middle-aged corporate executive who has all but lost his way, and travels abroad in hopes of finding the missing piece. What he discovers is a vineyard on the brink of ruin, and a desire within to breathe new life into it.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Kenneth Cancellara, Finding Marco, the film takes us on an emotional journey of loss, rebirth and self-discovery. Set against the beautiful backdrop of a vineyard in Southern Italy, the tale of a man reconnecting with his family’s roots, figuratively and literally, is one that many will find relatable. From the Vine is a story of community and love, and serves as a great reminder that our connection to our heritage is one that cannot easily be forgotten. (ICFF)
