Morocco / 2018 / 93' / Italian premiere
Electricity and roads arrive in the most isolated areas of the Moroccan High Atlas. Over a period of eight years, the film follows the long process of electrification of the mountain and testifies to the upheavals that the arrival of "modernity" generates within the pastoral lifestyle. This documentary is a journey on the wire, meeting the inhabitants, their humanity and their poetry.
