Shot in Italian Piemonte with the family of the italian filmmaker Tonino De Bernardi. A film about transmission between generations, about their love, their respect for life and art, and each other.
We witness a conversation with the Italian director Tonino De Bernardi whose film ''Elettra''(1987) adapted from the tragedy of Sophocles featured non-professional actors from his village. Portuguese director Teresa Villaverde observes the cult filmmaker and his family in Piemonte, Italy. They exchange questions and answers in a car ride. There’s something strangely touching about Bernadi’s quirky behavior, and Villaverde´s unique passion for recording is made apparent throughout. Made of several glass vessels of varying mass, a Galileo’s thermometer measures temperature using the changing density of liquid. This is the secret behind Bernardi’s filmmaking. There are differences between the two filmmakers but those differences become important indicators for measuring the world’s attitude towards arts and cinema. [LEE Sang-yong]
