La culla delle aquile
Italy / 2008 / 53'
This is the story of some people who, living isolated from the modern world, have maintained innocence and a distant lifestyle completely different from those of their urban and suburban fellow citizens. Guido, Giuliana, Anna, Francis and the other characters in this story have made a life choice: always to stay in contact with nature. They live in a village that clings to the Ligurian Alps, their roots in the mountain where they find their daily means of sustenance. There are few inhabitants there, but they are never alone, living their day-to-day life to the full and taking care of each other. By taking care of their small village and keeping its memory intact, they guard the cradle for the future of mankind.
