Cilizzio – Pastore tra mare e montagna
by Martina Aronne
Martina Argonne graduated in Cinema and Television at Dams in Roma Tre with a thesis on mountain cinema in relation to digital cinema. She then graduated in Media Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Frosinone with a thesis on anthropological cinema. She is interested in films about adventures, high-altitude and arctic expeditions. The passion for cinema, nature, mountains, simple and peasant life pushes her to approach anthropological and rural cinema. “Cilizzio – Pastore tra mare e montagna” (Cilizzio – Shepherd between sea and mountains) is her first documentary. It deals with the simple life of a shepherd in modern Italy. There is another work in the pipeline on sheep farming and young people.
