The distance is the result, in film form, of an ethnographic research carried out in 2020.
A family weaves its net in the lower Po Valley, in northern Italy. They have been nomadic shepherds for generations. They move continuously in a completely anthropized area, hidden from view. They are the performers of an ancient work that survives among the ruins of the modern agri-food civilization and which economically depends on the most controversial results of globalization. Indissoluble family ties that continually tighten between marginal landscapes and primitive violence. A movie without rhetoric made for the Ethnographic Archive of the Lombardy Region.
