At the time Tommasino Andreatta, originally from Trento, was teaching in Celentino. Andreatta involved his young pupils in un ambitious project: to carry out an environmental study and write the screenplay for a documentary intended to illustrate a typical day in a mountain village. The children set to work with their teacher and created a film which is unique in terms of the quality and poetry of the images, a precious portrait of a valley in Trentino which had just been reached by modernity, but which still lived according to the natural rhythms of peasant life.
Tommasino Andreatta was born in Trento in 1938. From an early age he was attracted by photography, to the extent that he constructed his own first camera. He taught in the Val di Sole and other primary and middle schools for 42 years. Starting from the early 1960s he began working as a cameraman with various television channels and directors. In 1968 he was director of photography for "Gioventù sul Brenta", the famous film by Severino Casara, produced by the Club Alpino Italiano. He has realised numerous series of slides for educational purposes.
