“Alles hat Grenzen, NUR DER MONDFISCH NICHT” is an environmental film musical, in which nature speaks in a diversity of voices. Surfacing from micro- and macrocosmic layers, she resonates with water as the source of life and resounds as exploited resource. She echoes from the trenches of an inverted world and speaks out as a human being. Reverberating through ecological-cultural depths, images, sounds and associations push to light, giving shape to a vision of humanity being in tune with nature.

The pun is the bearer of the dual intent of telling, starting from a small biomorphometrically analizad seed, a millenary tradition preserved in the hand and in the memory of elderly farmers on the small volcanic islands gravitating around Sicily.

A short film that tells the tree in its poetic, ecological, economic value. Although science continues to provide alarming data, we are moving slowly with partial actions towards the integration of the complexity given by global warming.
