Waterland Song

Adriano Smaldone Francesco Giarrusso

Documentary / miniDV / 32’ / 2009

Rocks, fields, vegetation that devours the uninhabited houses and that re-appropriates itself of what it was taken by man. The action of time on man and of man on things, their gestures and their memory.
David, wood-mask sculptor, and Adélia, ancient songs connoisseurs, are the characters of this movie, set in Trás-os-Montes, northeast of Portugal. They testify the neglect condition of this land, where survive traces of a prehistoric ocean.
