Don't Get Me Wrong

Somewhere, sometime.. a world in which time runs the same as stones are falling implacably on stones..

A self sufficient universe , with rules that escape the common logic, and, even though, perfectly valid. Days go by, between daily routine and endless conversations about life, death, God, weather forecast: what is divine and what is not ? who brings and who stops the rain?.. after all, what is normal and what is not..

On the fragile, impossible to distinguish border between fiction and documentary, in a contemplative and visually refined way, the film follows the existence of a marginal community that has a profound and unaltered human value although it is considered “null” from a social utilitarian point of view.

Apparently absurd actions get a second meaning, deeply emotional – the only way to escape the essential absurdity of the existence is love.
