Country: Italy
Year: 2019
Duration: 20'


In the course of a long, slow take over Funafuti, both drought and floods appear in a constant uninterrupted rhythm. The state of flux between both type of events is reflected in the places and actions of the inhabitants making the island’s extremes seem familiar: the air is riven with anticipation and surprise. The island of Funafuti, in the archipelago of Tuvalu, for some years now has become the stage for a unique phenomenon. Due to the unnatural warming of the sea, saltwater seeps into the subsoil bubbling up through the porous terrain provoking floods which put the future of life on this island at risk.

Declaration

film director

“This film’s idea certainly arises from some recurring elements that characterize much of our work. In particular, we are referring to the attention given to spatiotemporal changes that, through a complex editing process, are created out of real footage. What has interested us for several years is the possibility of working on the landscape to create a continuum of situations that are normally considered either opposite to each other or generated one from the other. Nobody imagines these situations occupying the same time and place, which instead is what we do.”
