Gardens of Light

 Giardini di luce / Gardens of Light

by Lucia and Davide Pepe   (13’, digital, colour, 2009)
60° Berlinal Film Festival - Berlinale Shorts 2010
Made in the ambit of the Progetto Memoria/Memory Project promoted by the Apulia Film Commission, the film by the Pepes describes, using cinematic instruments, sometimes experimental, designed to render the freshness of the glance dreamt by a youth, a perceptive and emotional motion across the popular event of a patron saint festival consisting of illuminations and fireworks, enjoyment and litanies, lights and perfumes. The final of the film, like The evening of the day of festivals, leaves joy suspended in a vanishing nostalgia.
