un film de / a film by

Gianfranco Rosi


Notturno was shot over the past three years along the borders of Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria, and Lebanon, a region where tyranny, invasions and terrorism have fed off each other in a vicious circle, to the detriment of the civilian populations. All around, and within the consciousness of all, signs of violence and destruction: but in the foreground is the humanity that reawakens every day from a nocturne that seems infinite. A film of light on the darkness of war.
