Isola, where Bacchus' language is spoken
Ethno-poetic reflection on the "Cantine Isola", a legendary enoteca (wine shop) located since 1896 in a popular area of Milan that, in recent years, has become the heart of the current Chinatown. The film depicts the daily life of this place where artisans of the district, usual customers - sort of historical "adventurers" - and famous people meet and mix in order to taste subtle beverages, but also to be themselves... to tell their story and measure their fleeting existences to a vintage wine.
Shoot between July 2009 and October 2010, in this zone threatened by enormous urban metamorphosis, the documentary evokes also the dialogue between communities, the transmission of knowledge, the sharing of sensations, heady scents and poetical incantations...
