  • affasf's rating of the film Georgica

    Contemplating the mechanical devaluation of life, the area where intensive farming first started, with the recital of Virgil's Georgics, is disturbingly moving. Contemporary horrors, final incarcerations of what couldn’t be mastered in billion years, at the state of shy expedients. The soaring, indistinct human blob, here is still a single countryman, hoeing the soil and grounded by the soil.
