In southern Piedmont, director Sandro Bozzolo traces his relationship with his father Ettore, a motorway toll collector and chestnut farmer, a man who can be moved by the immensity of the forest, where he recovers ancient abandoned chestnut groves. The common thread is transplanting, in relation to a valley or a community, also in generational terms. Both the village and the forest are repopulated, while a world that seemed destined to fade away is reborn from the severed trunk of a past that is still alive.
Born in Ceva in 1986, he has studied communications and urban documentary-making in Italy, Lithuania and Colombia. He participated in the Documentary and Cities programme. He has directed several short and full-length films, including ILMURRÁN, presented at the Trento Film Festival in 2015.
