Le Quattro Volte.
<< It's a film about the bond between man and nature. Cinema is one of those instruments by which man is placed at the center. ...We tried to bring out what is usually a background in film and culture: animals, plants, objects. In the film's central sequence plans emerge and conquer the scene in search of a new covenant with man, a new equilibrium.
So the story is told through the environment, from the image itself. The challenge of the film was to have a particular character, which is invisible. There are four protagonists: the pastor, the goat, a tree and then the coal, but in fact the real protagonist is a soul. We filmed the bodies to capture this presence inside. It is a film surface, but with persistence and a belief that the machine can capture this essence. >>
