Preview screening (closing film of the Giornate degli Autori 2019 festival in Venice)
In partnership with the ZINGARO EQUESTRIAN THEATER
“The Zingaro Equestrian Theater is without doubt one of the most significant theatrical adventures in the theatrical landscape of our time.
Both author-actor of this human and animal comedy, and film director, I wanted to travel through the image in the twists and turns of this quest, which is meant to be an equestrian but also a spiritual achievement. To implement for this an extraordinary cinematographic project; the shooting started more than thirty years ago allowed me to accumulate images stolen from the memory of the spectators who witnessed this incredible artistic adventure.
But giving an account is not enough, it is necessary to identify the meaning; making my story a story, exploring the journey in time and space from the track, to the intimate journey that links me to the animal. A film in the form of an initiatory journey that confronts the imaginary with the real. Trying to tell through images the ephemeral magic of theater, the spectacular and intimate emotion it engenders and use the words of poets to convey the meaning of life. An extraordinary quest. "
