NOTES FROM THE DIRECTOR:

 

“The Inner Valley emerges from the need to explore some personal
questions about fertility, life, death, nature and the mothers figure.
To represent this, we worked with “non actors” and took care to
respect their geography, their sounds, their voice and way of seeing things.

 

Contemplate how their world changes, how it moves. Getting into
their feelings. from a fictional anthropological perspective. our
intention was to get as close as we could to “life”.
Man – feelings – landscapes in its own nature, in its most
contemplative way, primitive and silent.”
