Revelstoke: A Kiss in the Wind traces an Italian immigrants journey to Revelstoke in the early 20th century.

Nicola Moruzzi

The trailer for a documentary that traces an Italian immigrants journey to Revelstoke in the early 20th century has been released.

Revelstoke: A Kiss in the Wind, by filmmaker Nicola Moruzzi, examines the journey of Angelo Conte, an Italian migrant who came to Canada in search of work in 1913. Conte found work on the railroad, and ended up in Revelstoke where he worked on the Connaught Tunnel for CP Rail.

Tragically, he died on Oct. 15, 1915, mere days before he was planning on returning to his family.

Moruzzi was inspired to make a documentary about his great-grandfather after his grandmother found a box of letters Conte sent to his family from Canada.

Conte’s story tells that of an immigrant trying to adapt to life in a new country; while Moruzzi’s story is one of discovery of a man who was always a mystery to his family.
