L’Ultimu Sognu

L’Ultimu Sognu

The woman who was in touch with animals was called Lucia. She is no longer alive, but her voice comes back, bringing images, coarse-grained and analogue, from a time when people still knew that there is a connection between the death of the animals and the death of the people. Today, in the digital present, there is only an old man alone in the forest, with a gun, a dog, a flashlight and the memory of Lucia. What do the sheep dream of, he wonders? And the donkeys?
