''Retour en Italie'' - ''Il buco'' by Michelangelo Frammartino



''Retour en Italie'' - ''Il buco'' by Michelangelo Frammartino

During the economic boom of the 1960s, Europe’s highest building is being built in Italy’s prosperous North. At the other end of the country, young speleologists explore Europe’s deepest cave in the untouched Calabrian hinterland. The bottom of the Bifurto Abyss, 700 meters below Earth, is reached for the first time. The intruders’ venture goes unnoticed by the inhabitants of a small neighbouring village, but not by the old shepherd of the Pollino plateau whose solitary life begins to interweave with the group’s journey. Another work of nearly wordless organic beauty that touches on the mystical, Il buco chronicles a visit through unknown depths of life and nature and parallels two great voyages to the interior.

''Retour en Italie'' is a new cycle of films, born from the collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal and the Cinéma du Musée, dedicated to the discovery of the new production of Italian cinema by offering the latest films by directors who are already part of the history of cinema such as Taviani and Tornatore; and the works of a new and sharp cinema like that of Frammartino and the Alessio Rigo duo of Righi and Matteo Zoppis.
