Arri Alexa / Italy / VIVO FILM, ESSENTIAL FILMPRODUKTION

Once upon a time trees in the south Italian countryside used to come alive and move from the forest into the village to celebrate the yearly fusion of man and earth. Wrapping the audience in waves of sound, Alberi takes us on a circular journey through the countryside of Southern Italy. In a triumphant reclamation of the old ways, director Michelangelo Frammartino ("Le quattro volte") captures the majesty of this ceremony via his singular cinematic artistry. This dynamic installation is both a mesmerizing homage to nature and breathtaking union of sound and image.

premiered at MOMA PS1 Dome as part of the Tribeca Film Festival 2013
