ALBERI

  • Release Year: 2013
  • Runtime: 28 minutes
  • Directed By: Michelangelo Frammartino
  • Country: Italy and Germany
Wrapping the audience in waves of sound, Alberi takes us on a circular journey through the countryside of Southern Italy, to the village of Satriano. Historically, men of the town would cover themselves with ivy, transforming into strange, ghost-like walking trees. This ancestral arboreal rite, nearly forgotten as newer generations gradually lost interest, celebrated the connection between man and nature while costuming the men for Carnevale. In a triumphant reclamation of the old ways, director Michelangelo Frammartino (Le quattro volte) captures the majesty of this ceremony via his singular cinematic artistry. This dynamic installation is both a mesmerizing homage to nature and breathtaking union of sound and image. | Read More

Bush. | Read More
