Synopsis


Melancholy music film in black and white, with sand and silhouettes. About the loss of a mother, with her unexpected exuberance, but who also cries Puccini melodies. Inspired by Jeanne Goosen’s eponymous poem, recited by the well-known South-African actress Elize Cawood, to the aria O mio babbino caro from Puccini’s opera Gianni Schicchi, in a legendary performance by Maria Callas (1955).
