FACE PAINTERS

ARLIE UNDERWOOD
Drama

Face Painters is a dual narrative saga set within two different epochs in the lives of LUCA GRAVETTI, founder of Gravetti & Sons Funeral Home, and his hardworking artisan son, BUONO, a full-blown illiterate and Luca’s de facto successor. The present-day story is Brooklyn, 1963, when Luca is overwrought with dementia, and Buono must juggle both the ailing business and his dear father. The earlier story, set in 1928, portrays the family’s misfortunes in the weeks before and during their migration from Tuscany. And while the American dream may lure some to dire consequences, it'll take almost a century for one to achieve his own.
