Short Film, Italy, 2020, Digital, Color, 6’40"
directed by: Elisa Baccolo
As the light of dusk lights up the ravins, three silhouettes head towards an empty farmhouse. In a combination of whisperings and gestures, the three women perform a ritual against the end of all things.
The film was shot during a Film Residency on Magic Beliefs in Basilicata, Italy, and represents a personal reinterpretation of the anthropological topic of rituals as means for healing.
