THE FOUR TIMES (LE QUATTRO VOLTE)

DIRECTOR: Michelangelo Frammartino - ITALY

Vivid and colorful, Frammartino’s four-part meditation on man and nature traces the cycle of life through the humble daily rituals of rural existence in the southern Italian region of Calabria. “An elderly shepherd ingests the dust from a church floor to treat his cough; a baby goat from his flock tentatively ventures out to pasture; a majestic fir tree is felled and repurposed as the centerpiece of a village celebration; finally, its logs are transformed into wood charcoal through the ancient methods of the local workers. Connecting the dots among animal, vegetable, mineral, and dust, the film is both concrete and cosmic, and it features what may be the most impressive single shot of the year: a masterfully orchestrated long take involving a religious procession, a herd of goats, a runaway truck, and a truly awe-inspiring dog.”—New York Film Festival. (88 mins.)

First Feature Film.

Sponsored by the Italian Trade Commission and the Italian Film Commission.
