During the economic boom of the 1960s, Europe’s highest building is being built in Italy’s prosperous North. At the other end of the country, young speleologists explore Europe’s deepest cave in the untouched Calabrian hinterland.

The bottom of the Bifurto Abyss, 700 meters below Earth, is reached for the first time. The intruders’ venture goes unnoticed by the inhabitants of a small neighbouring village, but not by the old shepherd of the Pollino plateau whose solitary life begins to interweave with the group’s journey.

IL BUCO chronicles a visit through unknown depths of life and nature and parallels two great voyages to the interior.

Director of Le Quattro Volte (2011), Michelangelo Frammartino's latest beautiful cinematic meditation was Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Venice International Film Festival.

An exceptionally crafted, staggeringly beautiful docufiction Variety

Il Buco is a soothing watch best viewed in the darkness of a cinema. It’s an immersive experience whose reward comes from the way Frammartino slowly builds on minutiae in work of the shepherd and the speleologists. The Hollywood Reporter
