said director Alberto Barbera, presenting it, which has the purity of a diamond” . The caves are “an absolute offscreen, also because the eternal night that reigns inside them would seem the most hostile to the camera. Yet, those who love cinema know well that the offscreen, the invisible, represent his” “deeper substance. I am struck by the coincidence that speleology, cinema and psychoanalysis have their baptism on the same date, 1895”, declared the director.

During the economic boom of the 1960s, the tallest building in Europe was built in prosperous northern Italy. At the other end of the country, in August 1961, a group of young speleologists visited the Calabrian plateau and its pristine hinterland, plunging into the subsoil of a South that everyone is abandoning. Thus they discover with its 700 meters of depth one of the deepest caves in the world, the Abisso del Bifurto of the Pollino plateau, under the gaze of an old shepherd, the only witness of the uncontaminated territory. The film, shot in Calabria, with Paolo Cossi, Jacopo Elia, Denise Trombin, Nicola Lanza, a Doppio Nodo Double Bind production with Rai Cinema, will be released in theaters with Lucky Red. (HANDLE).
