This interview with Costanza Quatriglio offers insights into the making of the documentary film Terramatta;. She answers questions about the filmic language she used to evoke the situations Vincenzo Rabito described in his autobiography and discusses links between her filmmaking and the oral tradition and the importance of understanding what Vincenzo Rabito's language meant to him. She explains how she selected the episodes from the autobiography to be included in the film and how she crafted the relationship between Rabito's story and official historiography. Finally, she discusses the significance of the archival images, the words, the music, and the landscape in this journey documentary that reinvents and reframes images, constructing new visual itineraries that propose a re-reading of Italian history through the autobiographical account of a man living on the margins who struggled to become literate in order to tell his story.
