26th TIDF: Greek Premiere
In the country of fog, all places have their music. Zinzin is a valley of light wind, durrundurrun a bottomless chasm and kurruzkarratz the lightning peak. Shepherds always baptized their world with their ears, and today there is only one left holding out alone in these old mountains, inhabiting his own silence. This film recovers a forgotten path to visit him and a lost way of walking, with his family’s old super-8 camera that no longer records sound, and a young donkey named Paolo as the filmmaker’s accomplices to reach a destination beyond time – even if he cannot find anyone still alive to tell him the exact route. The forgotten path and the mute camera will become, along with a donkey called Paolo, the protagonists of a journey full of memories, question marks and silence. A piece of poetic, handcrafted ethnography, unfolding like a whisper, a prayer, a Don-Quixotean reverie. The rest is silence.
