Italy · 2019 · DCP 2K · Color · 19' · o.v. Italian
Simply observing ordinary places and people, a symbolic reading emerges of our fall from Paradise, reflecting upon the human condition, on its unbridgeable loneliness, and on its destiny of death.
The unfinished walls of an abbey in the South of Italy provide the title for this delicate evocation of a waiting time that unfolds like a memory. The women’s voices and gestures repeat and overlap, from one summer to the next, in the shadow of the Medieval stones that record everything: the summer heat, the taste of figs, the words carved by passing African migrants. There is a feeling of timelessness, and yet the present shines through.
