The Murran Maasai in the Alps
BRA-Cinema Impero – Via Vittorio Emanuele II, 211
The contents of this story originate from “routes” and “roots”, in a mountain as a green desert where it’s possible to meet separate lives, held together by an ancestral time. This movie is entirely about the Maasai – African and Italian – overcoming the boundaries of stereotypes and seeking the essence of nomadic people. A film in which perspectives are flipped. The traditional cheese is made by black hands, while a linguistic minority (speaking kjé) is observed by a Maasai. Old values are overpassing the barriers of space and time, in order to testify a possible universal brotherhood. We need metaphors, we need above all to “think simple”. What could be more simple and strong than a gradual, natural empathy between these two very different women? Faced with Leah and Silvia, we just want to sit down and listen. We need to sit down and listen.
