Italy, Germany, 2001
Drama
A Straub-Huillet Retrospective

Synopsis

Amateur actors from the regional Buti theater, many of them ordinary laborers and farmers, recite passages from a novella which centers on a group of workers who rebuild their lives in the the aftermath of the Second World War.

Our take

A profound example of the unusual collaboration between Straub-Huillet and an amateur Italian theater in Buti, and a bracing adaptation of Elio Vittorini’s writing, which the duo had previously adapted with Sicilia! People, landscape, history, and storytelling merge and confront us powerfully.
