A short film about an art project - a marble slide for a children's park in Pontedera Italy - by the sculptor Stefan Ebner. We followed the massive block of marble from within the marble quarries of Fantiscritti (the quarries of white Carrara marble in the Apuan Alps region near Pietrasanta, Italy) through all of the steps it went through before becoming pure unabashed joy. This is a student film by Solene Ebner - who collaborated on the project.
The music - Pumcliks's "Per Svetlana" and Pumcliks's "Sammy's Freilach."
