On one of the Venetian lagoon islands the Finotello familly is producing vegetables to deliver to fellow citizens, Elisabetta belongs to the third generation of flower sellers on the famous San Michele island cemetary; Moudu is a Nigerian immigrant who confides some tricks of the bag-selling trade to the film-makers, while Riccardo Bonini thought he knows everything about being a fireman before he came to work in Venice. We also meet two tree doctors and last but not least a gondolier, who wanted to break free from the family tradition but the calling tempted him back to Venice.

The omnibus Venetian Connection was made in the frame of the HiLoVv – Hidden Live(r)s of Venice educational project, which has been supported by the European Union in the form of a Lifelong Learning – Intensive Programmes grant. The leading partner of the project is University of Nova Gorica School of Arts.
After two months of research-based script development about the “Hidden Live(r)s of Venice”, on November 21 2011 students from three universities and several countries met in the floating city to produce 6 short documentaries about Venice, its interesting professions and personalities…, all under the mentorship of the renowned film director, professor Rajko Grlić.

Film Angelina (by Valérie Wolf Gang & MarijaLaura) was awarded for best short film in the TRADITIONS CATEGORY at Erasmus Film Festival (participation from students of all European countries).
