Synopsis

THE CREATION OF MEANING is set in the Tuscan Alps, where German occupying forces massacred hundreds of civilians during WWII, and follows the daily life of Pacifico, a shepherd born in the wake of the war among those same breathtaking landscapes. The film blurs fiction, documentary and anthropology to explore the transient nature of meaning while capturing what Borges calls an Aleph, an allegorical singularity in space and time where past, present and future overlap and intertwine.
