The film addresses the growing impact of climate change in the most remote areas of the planet. Shot in the Andes, activating a profound dialogue with local communities, the work focuses on the ambivalent negotiation between nature and culture, showing the blurred boundaries between humans and non-humans within communities affected by melting glaciers.

Rosa Barba
(Agrigento 1972, lives and works in Berlin) creates site-specific installations and interventions to analyze the ways in which cinema articulates space, placing the work and the viewer in a new relationship. Her cinematographic works are placed between the experimental documentary and the fictional narrative, introducing performative elements. They often focus on natural landscapes and human interventions on the environment and explore the relationship between historical documents, personal anecdotes and cinematographic representation, creating spaces of memory and uncertainty.
