Synopsis

A woman gives voice to the text GLI ANNI by Annie Ernaux, a few fragments collected on the shores of a timeless Sardinia. Neither the word nor the images pretend to exhaust the story of its history: the places of the past emerge as reverberations of a fragmentary and changing memory, invested with a new light. Gestures, faces, scenes of life lived in the family, reassembled and disengaged from the context of origin, become expressive elements of a confession that is at the same time discovery of self and collective narrative. A promise to be renewed, inscribed in the exchange between the archive and the word.
