Directed by Antonio Santini and Dan Sickles • 2017 • United States
Winner of Sundance’s Documentary Grand Jury Prize, this empathetic portrait of an unconventional but loving relationship is a triumph of humanist filmmaking. Dina is an outspoken, neurodivergent woman living outside Philadelphia whose enthusiasm for life—and unwavering belief in love—is infectious. As she prepares to take the next step in her relationship with Scott—a comparatively sheltered Walmart greeter with Asperger’s—the two must navigate the unique challenges that intimacy and communication pose for them. Shot through with moments of tenderness, humor, and aching hurt, DINA is a love story as unique and unforgettable as the woman at its center.
