PANTARENO • 2019

DIRECTOR: Ettore Camerlenghi, Alexis Ftakas

COUNTRY: Italy

RUNTIME: '60

 

SYNOPSIS: Ettore boards a small rubber boat to retrace the romanticized family myth of his grandfather’s journey along the Rhine river in 1958. 60 years later, with friends Alexis, Luca and Carlo, the journey from Basel to Rotterdam sees the Rhine become a metaphor for the economically exploitive relations between man and the natural landscape. The travel turns into an intimate moment of thought and a dialogue on friendship and interpersonal relationship between generations. The meetings along the river, always accidental and fortuitous, produce a mosaic of stories, such as telling stories of arbereshe migration from the south of Italy to Germany, forming a portrait of daily life along one of the most industrialized rivers in Europe
