Sara in front of Sassi di Matera, Basilicata, Southern Italy.

About the Film

A documentary film about Sassi of Matera.

Interviews and conversations from May 2003 in Basilicata in Southern Italy. An extraordinary portrait from an almost forgotten town, dug into the tuff cliffs, that has been there since Classical times. Encounters with the equally extraordinary inhabitants of the town form the basis of the film. A surprise, with the bewitching music of an Apulian singer, UARAGNIAUN.
