English : "The Myth and the Reason". Written and directed by Paolo Conte.
English Translation : Susan Maggioni
An extraordinary voyage into the anthropological origin of Myth, in which dream and reality constantly overlap the brutality of the highlands. Returning to the desolation of the wilderness, the human being goes back to the source. Every sense returns to its original sharpness and thought traces its way back in the opposite direction, towards its oneiric root. So one can catch glimpses of strange shapes, perceive the voices of the clouds and listen to the thoughts of animals. What anthropological and cultural suggestions does desolation of nature produce in modern human been is exactly what the full-lenght film will try to focus.
The nature, not shown from naturalistic point of view (as the shorts could suggest), will be the lost third dimension of an introspective voyage into the spontaneous myth that flows each time we come back to wilderness and how the reason elaborate this lost sensation.
The documentary is entirely shot in Valle d'Aosta ( the the bilingual french-italian region of italian Alps, boarding the four 4000 m of Alps, particularly Ruitor glacier range, Gran Paradiso National Park valleys and Mont Blanc range). will be produced with italian voice over and french and english subtitles.
Trailer subtitles in English:
The true myth is born within us and blends with reality, vanishes and reappears on the words of the wind.
The world was once flat like an ancient sea - the wind that had always existed dragged the lands that inhabited oblivion - the eternal wind blew against the rock to shape its demiurges - it was the time before creation and the demiurges fought with the aid of the powerful weapons of orogenesis and alchemy - the land demiurge brought forth the burning sun - that of waters the chilling moon - Kerioundoui, master of lands - and his son, the sun, - unfurled the limits of the world - with storms of rock and fire - Kempetala, master of waters - and his daughter the moon - covered everything with a thick and chilling night - The myth and the reason - a poetic voyage in search of the ancestral myth - that arises in us when we find a contact with wilderness - it is then that myth takes shape in the rock - to talk to us through - the fabulous thoughts of animals - with the voice of the clouds - built of essential thoughts and actions - they constantly overlap reality - to finally converge - in the middle earth of our imagination - since always.

Ce film est dédié à la mémoire de Rudy Rivelli et Ludovico Maggioni.
Un voyage extraordinaire dans l'origine antropologique du mythe, où rêve et réalité se superposent constamment à la brutalité désoevrante des huates vallées. En retournant à la dèsolation de la nature sauvage l'être humain revient alors à la source. Chaque sense s'aiguise comme jadis et la pensée remonte jusqu'à ses racines oniriques. C'est ainsi qu'on verra d'étranges formes, qu'on percevra la voix des nuages et on entendra la pensée des animaux sauvages.
Italiano : "Il Mito e la Ragione"
Questo film è dedicato alla memoria di Rudy Rivelli e Ludovico Maggioni.
Un viaggio straordinario all'origine antropologica del mito, dove sogno e realtà si sovrappongono costantemente alla brutalità delle alte terre. Tornando alla desolazione della natura selvaggia, l'essere umano risale alla fonte. Ogni senso torna alla sua nitidezza originaria e il pensiero ripercorre la strada inversa fino alla sua radice onirica. Così si potranno intravedere strane forme, si potranno percepire le voci delle nuvole e ascoltare il pensiero degli animali.
This is a simple prologue (the beginning and the end) of the dcoumentary dedicated to Percy Bysshe Shelley (Field Place, Sussex, 4th august 1792 – Lerici sea (Italy), 8 July 1822), the english Poet, in the short Time lapse he leaved in Tuscany, where he died, after the shipwreck of his Ariel. The Film will start on the beach where his body was found and will end with his magical return to ocean on a paper boat, that he loved to make floating along rivers.
The trailer soon!
Gran Paradiso National Park, Italian Alps, Spring 2011. Chance encounter, fox has already given birth, and it is constantly looking for food. No food? no milk. Fox cubs are always waitng for mom and stll in danger, every day.
Fox is the only canine having feline psyche.
In many areas of the country local administrations promulgate law measures and foxes are hunted under the mask of containing their number. What about all battles of mid '70 for wildlife protection?
Since antiquity the cohabitation with humans, have been impossible, but we are sure that, at the end of the history, the fox will be certainly winner!

But I tried vimeo enhancer, Tchnicolor settings, and I found really corresponding to Chroma range and sampling of preview Panasonic DVCPRO HD 3CCD camera series. The only limit is detail oversampling in camera like HVX201 or 171, so gamma cine like (within contrast increasing) get the image more engraved than the original is still much: vimeo.com/65047179
