Lucia possiede un uliveto di famiglia insieme a suo fratello Donato, ma i suoi alberi hanno smesso di produrre come una volta a causa di un parassita che ha causato il disseccamento della maggior parte degli alberi.

Director’s Statement
Li Paradisi explores the dramatic “Xylella” issue, a bacterium that has affected millions of “evergreen” trees in the Salento area, causing massive explants of trees. The short film tells a story that wants express itself through images, presenting both realistically and symbolically the intertwined existences of human beings and nature, an immersion into a world that feed the emotions of the characters, using the ambient to mirror the conflicts of the souls. There is a more complex truth to what actors are actually seeing through their eyes, as there is a more complex reality to what simply appears on the images that lights up the screen.
​“I now live in things my eyes look at. I become an olive tree, wheel of a slow cart…”
