Gli elefanti di Annibale

De Laura Haby film 2016, 19min

  • 2016 - Exhibition Panorama 18 au Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains, Tourcoing de Tourcoing (FR)

In a small village near Aquila, the epicentre of an earthquake, in the middle of the mountains, children attentively observe natural phenomena, including the subtle movements of the earth. A strange village that moves, where the rational and irrational cohabit, as in a game. A little girl is the seismograph. She records the natural vibrations of the physical place and at the same time those of her sensible world. A myth, that of Hannibal’s elephants, is still resonant in this region. It explains why the earth here still quakes.
