In the 1960s, a team of young speleologists sets out to explore the Bifurto Abyss, Europe’s deepest cave in the remote Calabrian hinterland, for the first time.

The cavers’ venture goes unnoticed by the local villagers, but not by the old shepherd living nearby, whose solitary life interweaves with the group’s journey.

A meditative work of gorgeous photography and minimal dialogue that touches on the mystical, depicting a journey through time and nature. Italy 2021. Cert U. 1 hour 36 mins.

In Italian, subtitled. £6 cash paid at the door.
