Bartolomeo Pampaloni (Italy, 2021, 80')
Official Selection - Trento Film Festival
A delightful portrait of a hermit and creator of beauty. Isravele is an illiterate manual labourer who has lived the last 20 years in complete solitude on a mountain top, far from the chaotic city of Palermo so lacking in spirituality. He has abandoned his family to dedicate his life to God and to building a temple there, on the ruins of an old observatory. But a shopping mall has recently opened at the foot of the mountain and threatens to disturb his peace.
Bartolomeo Pampaloni, holds a degree in philosophy and he began his training in film direction at the Université Paris 8 - St. Denis and then at Rome CSC. His film Roma Termini won the critics’ special mention at the Rome Film Festival 2014.
