VERS CE LIEU ENFOUI
di Alexis Jacquand (Francia, 2021, 59’)
Official Selection - Visions du Réel 2021, Nyon | ANTEPRIMA ITALIANA
Bow in hand, an old hunter tracks chamois, deer and wild boar. Not far off, children explore a forest, build a cabin, and try to scare each other about encounters with wild animals. Both magical and burlesque, To This Buried Place draws us down to the very roots of wonder itself.
