The film is the result of the documentary film workshop “Ciak! La montagna si gira”. During the training programme a diverse and intergenerational group of aspiring filmmakers from Trentino take on the story of Piero, a man who has left his town in the Po Valley to live in the mountains of lower Valsugana. Like an acrobat he climbs silently to the top of majestic chestnut trees, but Piero is facing a new climb and will have to deal with a new life.
A psychologist, he has always spent time in the mountains of Trentino, using words to try and narrate untamed places still capable of astounding and surprising us. He dedicates himself mainly to climbing and ski mountaineering, and after several years of writing about the mountains and producing short videos, with PRIMASCESA he has made his first medium-length documentary film.
