Synopsis

The film explores what can originate from the necessity to love, without referring exclusively to the love between two humans. It’s about passion, religious devotion and, generally speaking, about that apparently unjustified impulse that can also leave deep marks on the body. There doesn’t have to be someone tugging on the other side of the rope, because love doesn’t pull in someone or something: it pushes us, making us willing to go to the furthest extent to reach the symbol we built. Even if it means waiting for our entire lives. Whatever it takes.

Director statement

“We shot in color in 16:9. Then, during the editing phase, we made it black and white to evoke a retro feel and added the edge track to simulate the 4:3 format.”
