Una ballata bianca
Experimental film in which an ageing couple in taut choreography and reflective voice-over look back on love, life and approaching death.
While an angel flies around, 20 doomed prisoners are sitting in the hell of L'Aquila, the city where there was a horrific earthquake in 2009. Visionary and stylised, by the maker of A White Ballad (IFFR 2007). Inspired by Rilke’s Elegies of Duino; beautiful music by Andrea Manzoli.
