Il mondo o niente is the isolated and fantasized south of Italy. But this other world is very close, crossed by a modernity blended with an idealized archaism: peasants have iPhone 6 and wolves respond to the sound of a megaphone, while mysterious machines observe the stars and an oil refinery poisons the waters of the territory.
Il mondo o niente it is a path that gets lost, a camera that takes only the side roads, drifting from one layer to another, mapping the secret bonds of this hidden territory. From dawn to the following dawn, from the summit of the mountains to the underground galleries, the film wanders and encounters, gradually erasing the imaginary landscapes to better explore the seams of a sewn world.

58 Festival dei Popoli
Describing the south of Italy requires a great effort. You need to overcome the wall of prejudices and readymade narratives that manufacture easy, banal products; take your time to be pervaded by places that can only be understood slowly, at the autochthonous pace; observe its great contradictions without pointing fingers, bu trying to grasp the thick, complex web that makes up the history of a territory rich in bitterness and wonder. Chiara Caterina rides across a region, Basilicata, in search of its pieces of bitterness and wonder. She goes from the sky to the sea, from the grottos to the rivulets of toxic spill that seep into the soil cracks, from the wolves' cries to wild boar hunting. She leaves all the unnecessary behind, cleaning her camera lens from the residues of superficiality to be able to immerse herself into those details that are as small as dense, and which, when juxtaposed, compose a fresh, hypnotic image of Basilicata.
