Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle

Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle

Ho visto in DVD “il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle”,  fresco di  primo montaggio. Protagonista e’ la montagna  nuda e verticale, dove la storia che ho scritto e’ ospite della bellezza. Edoardo Ponti ha dato immagine, luce e profondità al mucchietto di pagine mie da artefice, parola che per me e’ superiore a artista. Appena finita la proiezione ho avuto impulso di rivederla subito.

The last rains…

The last rains…

La pioggia di questi giorni cancella le nostre tracce dalla montagna. Anche il ricordo si annebbia: ci siamo davvero stati su per i monti a fare il nostro cortometraggio?

Sicuro, ci sono 12 ore di girato che da oggi Edoardo Ponti comincia a montare a Los Angeles. Buon lavoro Edoardo, aspettiamo il tuo film per ritrovarci insieme.
 
The last rains wiped out the traces of our stay in the mountains. Even the memory is fading away: have we ever been up on the mountains to shoot our short movie?
Sure we were, there are 12 hours of shooting that since today Edoardo Ponti starts editing in Los Angeles. Good job Edoardo, we wait for your movie to meet again.

Few words in Italian…by Erri De Luca

Few words in Italian…by Erri De Luca

Proverbio napoletano (tradotto in italiano): pure un calcio nel sedere e’ un passo avanti.

Abbiamo finito di girare le ultime scene con un calcio nel sedere da parte del tempo. Ci ha lasciato la giusta finestra, su misura, per le riprese all’aperto. L’ultimo giorno, martedi’ 10 luglio, scaccia a tuoni e fulmini dalla parete la nostra cordata di quattro, Diego, Manfred, Mara, Erri, impegnata nelle inquadrature acrobatiche. Scendiamo veloci sotto il temporale, ma abbiamo comunque scippato le inquadrature necessarie. La montagna ci ha lasciato fare e noi la ringraziamo inzuppati fradici davanti a una tazza di cioccolata calda.

The Dolomites have been good to us!

The Dolomites have been good to us!

Yesterday last day of shooting for the film “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” (The Night shift is covered by the stars) and the last take was given by the mountain, with a storm which sent the whole team into the dressing room: it was only fitting that the mountain would write the word “The End” to this lucky film.  Last climbing steps by Nastassja Kinski on the Dolomites: the lightest ones so far. Post production will take place in Los Angeles under the direction of Edoardo Ponti, and the mix Pacific Ocean/Dolomites will be worthy of fireworks! Welcome back home to Edoardo, Nastassja, Julian, Enrico. Erri remains in the Dolomites.

“Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” and…canederli!

“Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” and…canederli!

last day of shooting…we are so happy to have been part of this amazing adventure, but really, very sad to say goodbye…so, let’s talk about food, the only thing that can give Italians a smile…

A typical Dolomiti dish is “Canederli with spinach“:
For 6 persons
500 grams diced bread
half an onion
4 eggs
100 grams 00 flour
50 grams grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup of milk
400 grams spinach
SAUCE: 500 cl vegetable broth with all its vegetables – 3 packets of saffron – 3 tbsp cream.
Put the ingredients for the canederli in an ample bowl and mix with the milk until a tick mixture is obtained. Use a ladle to form balls and wet your hands to compact them as if they were balls of snow. Cook in boiling water for ten minutes. Use the mixer to make the sauce, including the vegetables, the broth, the saffron and the cream.
Blend everything well and add a dash of freshly ground pepper.
Pour the sauce onto a large serving dish and set the previously drained canederli on it.
Ok, tonight in Vigo Di Fassa, we’ll eat canederli!!!

Enrico Lo Verso and his first day of shooting…great emotions for all of us…

The first day…

The first day…

After a quick bout of  hail and rain the sky opened and the sun came through to give its welcome to the short, “The Night Shift is Covered by the Stars, which started shooting today on the mountains of Val di Fassa, in the Dolomites. Director Edoardo Ponti braved the cold of the early morning to direct actor Enrico Lo Verso and writer Erri De Luca, whose wonderful story about two people embarking on a hopeful journey to health after serious heart operations, gave birth to this wonderful project. The film will continue shooting all week in Trentino, where Julian Sands will join the rest of the cast and crew, before wrapping on July 10th. And tomorrow, Nastassja Kinski will shoot her first day while climbing a “ferrata”, a difficult mountain trail, in preparation for the final climb the characters embark towards the top.. stay tuned for more from the set of “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle!”
