synopsis

Messina is a city built on the ruins of a disaster. Port of entry for the black plague to Europe, razed almost flat by multiple earthquakes, devastated by allied air raids, this small Sicilian town rallied its energies time and time again from deep within itself, like the strange phenomenon governing the straits on its shore: wind currents emboldened by the Earth’s rotation bring to the surface deep waters carrying strange organisms rarely washing on the shores of the Mediterranean. It seems only fitting that here, when traditional political parties sunk into disaster, new, unforetold energies rose on their ruins: a Buddhist surrounded by an environmental movement, artists and activists given to utopian thoughts of equality. A melancholy impressionistic comedy filmed with aesthetic grace and ethical thoughtfulness.
