Guissepina

UK, 1960 (MIFF 1960, Programme 24)

Director: James Hill

Guissepina, the daughter of a filling station proprietor in Northern Italy, observes the varied passengers of assorted vehicles as they pull up for petrol. The humour and pretenceless setting of the story makes it into a public relations film with a difference.
