She River - Encounters on the Po and its Tributaries
'She River' - Encounters on the Po and its Tributaries / La Fiuma - Incontri sul Po e dintorni
A film about the river Po in northern Italy, the people who live along its banks and their relationship with the river.
An anthropological documentary about the Big River Po and its surrounding. A journey with legs between small villages and histories of life, songs in the night, boat bridges, legends on sheat-fish, traditions, changes and pollution. The Po and its tributaries as described in stories told by the people who live along its banks; microhistories unfold in settings where time seems to have stood still; fishermen's tales, legends and poetry recited in Lombard dialect; testimony to a forgotten way of living on the river and in its surroundings, more in tune with nature, its rhythms, in a sort of spontaneous symbiosis.
