HaFI Presents: TARDO AGOSTO, Filippo Foscarini & Federico Cammarata, December 4, 2023, Arsenal Cinema
Sicily, 2020. In a godforsaken landscape, a sudden change in weather finally marks the end of a suffocating summer. A group of horses stands in the shade. A city has gone up in flames. TARDO AGOSTO is a journey through Sicily from the coast to the hinterland along the trail of a raging fire that burns and destroys everything in its path. This is accompanied by the personal story of a young Gambian shepherd who has migrated to Italy and assisted the birth of his daughter in Africa from a great distance. The documentary TARDO AGOSTO dives deep into the landscapes of a scarred island.
TARDO AGOSTO was nominated best international film at the 15th edition of Beldocs and and won the CG Entertainment Distribution Award at Cinema dei Popolis.
Filippo Foscarini is a currently a guest of the residency program at the Harun Farocki Institut with support of the German-French Cultural Institute Kulturensemble (Goethe-Institut/Institut français, Palermo).
