Italia / 2021 / 76 min / Documentar
ENG: Kinnaur is a tribal district in the Indian Himalayas located on the fragile border between India and China. It is a place of spirits and high peaks where the cult of grokch survives, oracles who go into a trance and are possessed by the divinity, performing exorcisms and healings. After centuries of isolation, in recent decades the area has had to face the challenges of modernity. The film is the result of seven months of fieldwork carried out between 2003 and 2019, combining journalistic reporting and ethnographic research.

Muzică cerească, interpretată cu măiestrie de celebrul muzician Brunello în Cervino/Matterhorn, o locație extraordinară, văzută de pe munte. pe care primul alpinist Edward Whymper l-a identificat ca fiind primul traseu de urcare. Mario și Nives, prieteni de multă vreme, conversează și își povestesc experiențele respective, acompaniați de muzica lui Bach. Potrivit lui Brunello, confruntarea cu acest compozitor este ca și cum ai escalada un munte înalt. Iar Suita, cu diferitele sale mișcări, este ca o expediție montană – de la faza de studiu până la pregătire, urcarea în sine și apoi coborârea. „Sarabanda” este unul dintre actele marcante ale acestei „provocari”.
ENG: (Sarabande on the Edge of Heaven) is a film directed by Luca Bich and Gian Luca Rossi, produced by L’Eubage with the support of Cervino Cinemountain. It began with an idea by the musician Mario Brunello, shared and developed by Montura and Forte di Bard, then enthusiastically taken up by the great mountaineer Nives Meroi, one of the first women in the world to have climbed all 14 8,000-metre-high mountains.
„Sarabanda” refers to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suite No. 6 for a five-stringed violoncello piccolo, composed between 1717 and 1723. Heavenly music, interpreted masterfully by the celebrated musician Brunello in Cervino/Matterhorn, an extraordinary location, seen from the mountain that the first climber Edward Whymper identified as the first route up. Mario and Nives, long-time friends, converse and tell each other their respective experiences, accompanied by Bach’s music. According to Brunello, confronting this composer is like climbing a high mountain. And the Suite, with its different movements, is like a mountain expedition – from the study phase to preparation, the climb itself and then the descent. „Sarabanda” is one of the outstanding acts of this „challenge”.
