A ship Home

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


Documentary Film on the Puppetry tradition in Sicily. The documentary explores this long tradition of storytellers, who use Homeric and Carolingian stories to make their audience reflect on their lives. Nowadays, this art form is only practised by a handful of puppeteers. In Palermo, different puppeteers try to keep the theatre alive, hoping to introduce youngsters to the richness of the stories, in the hope that the oral tradition will be carried on again.
