The short story by Erri De Luca, “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” (Stars work the night shift) will be soon a short movie: the film, directed by Edoardo Ponti, will be shot this summer in the magnificent landscape of the Dolomites of the Region of Trentino, in Italy. Interpreters are Nastassja Kinski and Enrico Lo Verso along with Erri De Luca himself in a short cameo.
It’s a story about a man and a woman. He is alone. She is married. Both mountaineers, both survivors of cardiac operation. He has in his chest the heart of a young woman, she has a mitral valve. A fate and a promise unites them . A short story where the rhythm of the heartbeat accelerates, to find at the end, a steady pace.
The film is co-produced by OH!PEN with the Trentino Film Commission, Montura and Pasta Garofalo, and with the support of Trentino Marketing and San Carlo.
This summer, it will be an amazing “last-minute” vacation idea, to plan a new kind of trip, following Erri De Luca’s steps, being surrounded by the breathtaking mountains of the Dolomites…let’s go!
