Omelia contadina

J. R., Alice Rohrwacher
Italy, France 2020
9 min

In their short dedicated “to all the peasants who continue to feed the world and keep us alive day after day“, Alice Rohrwacher and JR build a monument to mourn the small farmer. We witness a truly cinematic happening when a community of peasants gather to hold a funeral for their trade, which is symbolized by a giant piece of land art covered in dust. Yet the funeral is only a performance; what is really at stake is the actual destruction of agricultural landscapes due to industrial monocultures. (Patrick Holzapfel)

In the presence of Friedl vom Gröller and Michael Heindl.
