The third, Sicilian part of the “Films of Europe” cycle inspires from the testamentary document written by Pasolini not long before his death, which metaphorically communicated his political despair about the “disappearance of the fireflies,” and Didi-Huberman’s reply. Vincent Dieutre travels across the far south of Europe in search of today’s “fireflies” who invent a political life on a daily basis. The filmmaker finds them, on the way, in Palermo’s first gay demonstration, among the occupants of the Garibaldi Theatre, or the young militants of Lampedusa. Dieutre’s essay-film comments on contemporary Sicilian society, the state of politics in Italy and Europe today.
I walk over rocks hot as iron under the September sun. I can make out a few lines in the distance, and a few cracked rocks, but apart from those, not a single tree, not one plant. I have walked until I reached this hill, in the trail of the letter that hurled me once again to my home town...
Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms.
