PLOT

Made of Limestone is the debut film by two brothers, Andrea and Marco Nasuto. Starting from their own personal dilemmas—“to stay or to run away?”—the Nasuto brothers put together a provocative and thoughtful portrait of
their hometown of Manfredonia (Foggia province, Apulia) and the wider area of the Gargano peninsula, a spur on the Italian boot along Apulia’s Adriatic coast. At the same time, the film equally describes much of Italy’s south today. The film presents
the ambiguities and tensions facing youth in Manfredonia through a series of interviews with young adults, asking them to reflect on the positive and negative things about their hometown and whether they themselves intend to stay or leave. These
interviews are interwoven with some statistical information and other factual data about the area, dreamy long shots of a Mediterranean seaside town, and the directors’ personal commentaries. The portrait that emerges from the interviewees’ descriptions and comments is reminiscent of the well-known “paradise inhabited by devils” motif of past descriptions of the Mezzogiorno… (Dorothy Louise Zinn)

TRAMA

Andare via o provare a rimanere? La domanda è comune a tanti giovani e meno giovani italiani di oggi. È giusto provare a cambiare le cose dall’interno o il sacrifico personale è troppo alto visto il rischio che ogni tentativo si riveli poi vano? Andrea e Marco Nasuto, due fratelli di 23 e 25 anni hanno provato a rispondere a questa domanda realizzando un bellissimo “web documentario” dal titolo Made of Limestone (Fatto di pietra calcare), un’ora di eccezionali immagini ed interviste dedicate al Gargano, la zona della Puglia da cui provengono.
