Documenting “The end of Summer”

Between Oct. 23 and 28 we ended up meeting quite a few times Jean-Baptiste de Brabander, a young French film maker. Jean-Baptiste is working on an ambitious documentary, with the intent of portraying the four seasons in Italy. The documentary is being shot entirely on film and is called “La fin de l’été” (The end of Summer).

Following a pattern which is not new in the pibinko.org network, we happened to interact wearing different hats, and shared multiple moments with Jean-Baptiste. We are now very curious of seeing the final product, even though a bit more time will be needed. In fact, Winter still has to be filmed, and editing will follow. In the meantime, we liked the idea of “documenting the documentary maker”, with our best wishes for the continuation of his project.

In the sequence below you can see him in Follonica, during the shooting of “Abramo” versione Jug Band Colline Metallifere, together with Klaus der Geiger; in the Farma Valley with Mario Straccali from Torniella and Andrea Giacomelli to cover (on Anna Giacomelli’s property) some chestnut harvesting, at the Boscaiolo restaurant in Torniella to elaborate on Autumn and these territories, and at the Ixtlan agricamping in Tatti, after a take on the genesis of the Farma Valley Winter Fest.

“Buiometria” is Helping to Build Dark Sky Parks

As a preview on the conference on “Interdisciplinary Protection and Promotion of the Night Sky: state of the art, action items, and visions” at the University of Brescia, we had an article on the Brescia edition of Corriere della Sera (one of the two main newspapers in Italy), including part of an interview to Andrea Giacomelli.
