At the award ceremony of this year's Torino Film Festival, Special Jury Mention and Cipputi Award for Best Film on Work were assigned to Jacopo Quadri's Lorello and Brunello, story of twin peasants from Tuscany working at the family farm, challenging globalization by preserving their harmonious relationship with nature. Here's the jury motivation: “If life is a long mellow river, the documentary Lorello and Brunello by Jacopo Quadri allows us to appreciate the landscape from one of its bights and watch it flow through the natural gait of its seasons. The director reminds us of a way of understanding work that often our urban civilization keeps forgetting (and removing). He does it through the powerful portrait of the two protagonists, who are conscientious of their role, of the history preceding them and of the times they are living in. A“resistant” film, which is both a document and as well as an ethic warning, which now gets hushed by contemporary, increasingly threatening and cumbersome, economic revolutions.”
