Notturno

By Gianfranco Rosi

For three years, Gianfranco Rosi filmed along the borders of Iraq, Kurdistan, Syria and Lebanon. Step by step, with patience and extraordinary talent, he captures the humanity that awakens each day from a seemingly never-ending night and tells the story of how people come together beyond arbitrary geographical borders. A masterful and painterly, Notturno is a jewel of light chiseled from the dark matter of Middle Eastern history.
