The Farewell

Genrikh Ignatov
An Italian village is filled with the sounds of the coming spring. Everything comes to a halt and listens: people, houses, and the ancient chestnuts that have existed in this place since time immemorial. What news does the wind bring them, through the waters of the mountain river? Genrikh Ignatov’s camera gazes intently at the atmosphere of place. In The Farewell, the action manifests itself in subtle gestures, modest and ordinary but necessary and significant. The long static shots don’t signify reflection so much as a meditation that brings the viewer to within touching distance of the cycle of life and death.
