A woman gives voice to the text “The years” by Annie Ernaux, a few fragments collected on the shores of a timeless Sardinia. Neither the word nor the images pretend to turn out its story: the places of the past emerge as reverberations of a fragmentary and changing memory, illuminated by a new light. Gestures, faces, slice of life lived in the family, reassembled and disengaged from their context of origin, become expressive elements of a confession that is at the same time self-discovery and collective narrative. A promise to be renewed, inscribed in the exchange between the archive and the word.
