Docudrama: the life of Italian school kids high up in the Alp mountains.
Set in sleepy Gerola in the Italian Alps, Il fungo sirena (The Mermaid Mushroom) chronicles the summer adventures of children untouched by the demands of modern, urban living. The story is seen from the point of view of a child – that stage of life in which the senses are heightened to a point where an everyday occurrence can seem like a mesmerising event.
Soundtrack available at all good online record stores.
