OSSIGNUR! LA MONTAGNA ASSISTITA

SANDRO GASTINELLI, MARZIA PELLEGRINO

Italy / 2008 / 62'

In Varàita Valley, on the western Alps, a social worker, five social-health professionals, six family doctors and five nurses work for the social-health services. Their work is coordinated by the Local Health Authority and by Consorzio Monviso Solidale, a cooperative that takes particular care of individual services which in a mountain area are fundamental for the survival and prosperity of the whole community. The film leads us to reflect deeply on what the protagonists of the stories tell us, or simply hint at in their flowing actions; no commentary is added to the film. In this way you walk on tiptoe through people’s homes, their lives and the problems of the mountains in general: illnesses, alcoholism, solitude, and even the experience, in those places, of a natural condition like old age.

Directors

SANDRO GASTINELLI

Sandro Gastinelli and Marzia Pellegrino have been married since 1991. In addition to their marriage they have also cultivated their passion for stories told through the images of the people in the Western Alps, where they live in the chestnut wood of Rosbella di Boves with their two children and only 3 other inhabitants. Their passion soon becomes their job, a continual research in the territory: in over ten years of activity they have shot about a dozen documentary and fictional films which have participated in some of the most renowned mountain film festivals, receiving several international awards in Trento, Cervinia, Les Diablerets and Autrans. In 2000 they “made up” the Rosbella Film Festenàl on their doorstep, “the smallest film festival in the world”. Since 2007 they have been artistic directors of the video-cinematographic section of Cuneo mountain festival. They participated in TrentoFilmfestival with Parla de Kyé (1997), Mari, monti e … gettoni d’oro (1999), Aiga d’en viage (2000), Arriverà il sole (2001) Pastres de Sambucanos (2002), Piròt, en fièt d’en bot (2003), A l’avirùn ed l’àibu (2003), Marghè marghìer (2005) and OSSignùr! La montagna assistita (2008).
