Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha


The Upland Sergeant – Mario Rigoni Stern’s Story di Tommaso Brugin e Federico Massa – 52’ – Italy 2022

Regional Preview

A journey between present and past, rich in testimonies and reflections, to tell the story of the writer Mario Rigoni Stern (1921-2008). During an imaginary day, from dawn to the starry night, his voice, taken from an extensive archive, recalls the years of war and imprisonment. The Sergeant of the Alpine troops, having returned home, over time became the Guardian of the Asiago plateau, and his homeland assumes the value of a world to be preserved against wars and indifference.


At the end of the screenings, we toast together with roasted chestnuts and wine.

All the documentaries in competition on November 18th are visible in streaming on the docacasa.it platform at the page https://festivalmentelocale.docacasa.it starting from 10.00 am on November 19th for the following 24 hours.
