“Rare” is an indie documentary centered on seven extraordinary women who set out to realize seven unique, sustainable projects on their own land. It is a “solo production”, realized during a journey through six italian regions, and it is made of moving and still images shot with my personal equipment and in collaboration with the enlighted gaze of photographer Roberto Tarallo Giovando. These seven young women set out on a new lifepath often without any previous experience in agriculture. They needed to go back to their roots and give new meaning to their professional paths. Their journey earned them a new outlook on life, one of intimate knowledge and respect for the land, its biodiversity and the people who sustains it. The narration is based on the interviews with these inspiring women, who reveal the extraordinary stories that brought them to choose a rural life and the newfound connection with the land that they work, love and live. As the subtitle suggests, this documentary is a journey through “women’s lands”, a quote inspired by the “Women’s Land Army”, a civil organization created during the First and the Second World War so women could work in agriculture, replacing men called up to the military. Even though my documentary is set in today’s world, history tells us how women have always been the strongest link of rural family ties.
