Salvo Alibrio

THE COFFEE OF THE COAL MERCHANT

Description

An atmosphere of smoke and cuts of light evokes fragments from the past, broken by the smell of coffee and the music that comes from an old radio set.

Jury motivation

For having been able to recreate the atmosphere of a long lost memory; for the narrative synthesis ability to tell a story rich in humanity; for having been able to highlight an intimate dimension that brought us back to an atmosphere that seemed long gone to us.
