Time through your hands
Il tempo si distingue tra le tue mani
“Time through your hands” is a movie-letter about distance. A reflection on the mechanisms of memory, on the impossibility of recalling memories in their entirety. The director’s hands interweave with those of her grandmother, creating a link in which time flows. Passing from silent images to words written on scraps of film.
