Film synopsis: 
This portrait of a film director unlike any other attempts to capture the essence of Vittorio de Seta’s rapport with the humble people he filmed and elegantly brought to Cinema Scope’s big screen in color from the 1950s onwards. From his home in Calabria, the film director looks back over his epic films. Starting with the sound on his earliest short documentaries, this craftsman of the screen and pioneer of sound tells us how he went on small fishing boats catching swordfish, to the depths of sulfur mines and to the top of Mount Stromboli to film and record. Then, evoking his feature-length films such as “Diary of a Schoolteacher”, “Half a Man” and “Bandits of Orgosolo”, Vittorio de Seta explains how filming other people also involves a certain amount of soul searching.
