Scent of Myrtle
- The Foods We Love
|Program Note||Francesco MATTU, a main character in this documentary, lived in various regions of Italy following his father who was a shepherd in his childhood. This outgoing and cheerful man, Francesco, once worked at the construction site, but now he settles down in Friuli. He herds sheep and produces cheese. The director had happened to meet Francesco and then, decided to make his unique and attractive story a film. This documentary mixes Francesco’s past and present, and deliberately breaks down the boundary between documentary and fiction. It also captures the culture, scenery, and lifestyle of Friuli in a comprehensive way.|
