Ra Menada

A Film by Alice Angeletti


The daily light is often too bright and unbearable. But the sun disappears quite quickly. And then a blue darkness caresses your tired eyes,while the restless memory of ancient stones makes the silence sound even louder. Are you sure that you really want to go back?
