INTERDEPENDENCE is a unique film composed by eleven short-movies. Started in 2018, the project explores in a sensible and creative way the position of humankind and nature. The key stories illustrated by the eleven internationally recognized filmmakers reflect the intertwined relations between human society and natural environment that are aggravated by climate change on multiple dimensions and scales, hinting at possible solutions.
OLMO is one of the eleven short-movies.
Olmo, eighty years old, looks out of the window of a building in the suburban area of a city. His eight year old grandson Giulio is reading him an article from the newspaper about melting glaciers, the greenhouse effect, methane and CO2… «What is C-O-2?» asks the child. « Do you remember the carbon dioxide we studied?» says Grandpa. «The one the trees breathe?» asks Giulio. The day after, they’re leaving for a short tour instead of going to school, searching for an old tree.
