Red and black
“Black” is for the black and white chosen for the shooting of this timeless ritual. Swordfish fishing has always been done in the same way, by using special boats called “palamitare”, as tradition dictates. “Red” is the color of blood, of the ropes, of the tanned backs of the fishermen. The movie, like a painting accompanied by Antonello Neri’s music, mixed with the sounds of the sea and the wind, tells a mythical and yet contemporary tale.
Scuola Fuorinorma Award
The film is awarded due to the corageous way it tackles the technical/expressive sonorization perspectives of the film images.
