In the Beginning of the 20th century life is hard in Ughettera, Northern Italy. The Ughetto family’s village dreams of a better life abroad. Legend has it that Luigi Ughetto crossed the Alps to start a new life in France, thus changing the destiny of his beloved family forever. His grandson travels back in time revisiting his family history through an evocative stop-motion animation film.


This Annecy Jury Award–winning animation takes us on an adventure across the Alps – and into the dreams of an Italian immigrant family. Combining personal memories, poetry and realism, No Dogs or Italians Allowed offers a touching and entertaining testimony to the experiences of generations of migrants and a tribute to their courage.


“No Dogs or Italians Allowed is a film that is both tender and rough, intimate and historical, poetic and realistic.” – Cineuropa
