What is the meaning of my land (MaTerre)?

In the Euro-Mediterranean culture there is a strong bond of belonging to one's land, which we already find in the verses of Homer's Odyssey. One of the revisitations most suggestive of this epic poem is surely Nostos – The Return, written and directed by Franco Piavoli in 1989. The documentary maker has reworked the adventures of Ulysses in a very personal way, consistent with the poetry of his other feature films (The Blue Planet, At the First Breath of Wind, Voices through Time). In all of them, the images alone are entrusted with the task of telling the events, be they Earth seen from the sky, a day spent in the heat of the countryside or the turning of the seasons in the village of Castellaro. A way of making cinema, unmistakeably Piavoli's, that is very distant from what is usually seen today. Speech is reduced to the bare minimum and sequences follow one another with a slowness necessary for the credibility of the intimate narrative. Poetry and cinema come together once again in a bid to find the answers.
