La Cacciata del Malvento
Italy / 2016 / 48'
In Grassano, in Basilicata, elderly women reveal the secrets of ancient practices half-way between paganism and religion, designed to rid people of envy and bad luck. The town is divided into opposing factions uniting both young and old: there are those who believe in the existence of something intangible, a force beyond rational control, and those who instead reject this knowledge.
