Man Kind Man is the affirmation of those who fight against a flow of events that seems unstoppable.
At the end of January 2018, two sea turtles (Caretta Caretta) were found beached on the coastline of Lazio and urgently transported to the Anton Dhorn sea turtle hospital in Portici.
They are two of the more than 150,000 sea turtles that become entrapped every year in the fishing nets used in the Mediterranean Sea. Around 40,000 die.
While the turtles are being cared for, with the hope of being released in the spring, Luca collects sand in the Gulf of Naples and tries to clean it from the soil left over from a motocross race; it is the material he uses to create his pictures. A paddle enters the crystal waters of the River Sarno. It is Aniello, who pushes his kayak towards the first signs of illegally dumped waste; Franco contemplates the sea and collects two plastic petals found on the beach.
Is it all true or are the two turtles dreaming?
