This 3-minute video directed by Michele Russo shows us the wild and pristine beauty of Basilicata, a region in Southern Italy famous for its enchanting landscapes; but once again there’s more to it than meets the eye; in fact the director employed the voice of Francis Ford Coppola to narrate the history of this beautiful land where Francis Ford Coppola’s family has its roots.
The film documentary also shows us the small village of Bernarda, Coppola family’s hometown and then from this rather remote place we start a symbolic journey through the private history of this famous Italian-American family who took the world by storm. Its soundtrack, a beautiful ballad called Morrison’s jig , is sung by Giuliana De Donno, a local singer. We thank Ekkimosi who posted the video on youtube
