2014. Italy. vo Italian. s Spanish. 13’
The video is the result of an attempt to reawaken, even for a moment, a vitality signal in the mind of an uncle of mine who suffered from Alzheimer's but, unfortunately, failed due to his premature death. I undertook the same experiment with Lieutenant Aldo Sacchetti, one of the few survivors of a bloody battle in which my uncle took part.
I therefore organized a private screening with the intention of virtually transporting the commander of that brigade back to the site of that historic battle, in the same climatic conditions of April 1944, in the mountains, on the border between death and salvation.
At the same time, I filmed the partisan's reactions to the images of those snowy landscapes that he had traversed onn foot seventy years earlier.https://vimeo.com/quarantaalessandro
