TLN Media Group’s newest original documentary tells the story of an ancient superstition that has wreaked havoc on the psychological development of many Italian-Canadian children. It’s called the ‘Malocchio’. The malocchio translates to mal=bad and occhio=eye or otherwise referred to in English as the evil eye. According to Italian folklore, those giving the malocchio can cause harm to others. Told through the personal life experiences of its Writer and Director, @Anthony Sarracco, this compelling story explores the fear and fascination with this centuries-old superstition, and its subject matter will undoubtedly resonate with Italian-Canadian viewers who will have their own unique stories to share.
