Based on a poem written by Tonino Guerra. This piece of writing later influenced Andrei Tarkovsky during the creation of 'Nostalghia' in 1983. I found these beach houses in Far Rockaway and felt a longing for my upbringing. I thought about the fragility of the home through a choreographic, cinematographic passage. What remains is the manipulation of familiar memories within a foreign landscape. The film is dedicated to my father, Mario Gattorna, who performs the voice-over as well.
