An original road movie whose main characters include steers and cows, landscapes and pastures in the Trentino region and in Bosnia-Herzegovina; an exemplar representation of solidarity by Gianni Rigoni Stern, son of Mario. After a journey of discovery and identification in the field, forty-eight steers and heifers are moved and given away to the families of breeders on the Suceska upland, about ten kilometers (six miles) from Srebrenica.
An incisive project that begins with a willingness to concretely address the damage left in the field by war, to help reconstruct (at least in part) the conditions necessary for recovery and the creation of a future in agriculture in a Bosnian community that still today, fifteen years after the war’s end, suffers the devastation that is inevitably a consequence of war.
Gianni Rigoni Stern bridges the gap between his experience and wisdom and the natural rhythm of an Italian upland, Asiago, with a Bosnian upland. A story that brings about once again values, exchange, and positive relationships with the land, “between neighbors who live in different places”.
There is a fund that hopes to donate two used four-wheel drive tractors to the community of farmers and breeders in Suceska, Srebrenica.
