Pardi di domani: Concorso internazionale
In the middle of deserted ski slopes, the night ride of snow groomers is about to start. Antoine joins his team. The hypnotic ballet of snow machines begins. Suddenly, the mountain growls...
Manon Coubia (Pardino d’oro 2016 for L’Immense Retour – Romance) returns to Locarno with a beautifully night-shot 16 mm documentary-turned-fantasy. A group of men gather in a cabin on the ski slopes. They have a drink before parting on their journey to groom with their huge and powerful machines the snow cannons have been producing. But nature is untameable. In the middle of a snowstorm, a young man will meet with the power and the mystery of the mountain.Stefan Ivančić
