The maestro Terrence Malick has joined Carlo Hinterann’s The Book of Vision as an executive producer, adding to the international flavour at the heart of the film, the shooting for which has just wrapped up in Trentino. The Italian-Swiss director returns to the Lessini Mountains after filming in Belgium to complete his latest film, which boasts an international cast, including Charles Dance from Game of Thrones to the Dutch actress Lotte Verbeek (from the TV series Outlander, winner of the Silver Leopard at Locarno for Nothing Personal), the Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason (Borg/McEnroe) and Italian actors Filippo Nigro (the TV series Suburra) and Giselda Volodi.

The Book of Vision was produced by Citrullo International (Italy) along with Entre chien et loup (Belgium) and Luminous Arts Productions (UK) in collaboration with Rai Cinema, the Trentino Film Commission, Wallimage and with the support of MiBACT. Prestigious professional sweave their magic on this story, which is suspended somewhere between fantasy and mystery, with the crew including the the likes of Jörg Widmer as director of photography, who has already worked alongside notable directors such as Wenders, Malick, Tarantino, Haneke, Polanski and Spielberg. The film's scenography has been entrusted to David Crank (Il Petroliere, The Master, Lincoln, Hannibal, The Tree of Life), while Neapolitan-born Mariano Tufano is in charge of costume design, having worked on numerous national and international productions following his debut with Golden Door (winning a Davide di Donatello for Best Costume Design). Carlo Hintermann, director, producer, musician, but also distributor and author of books on cinema, has also collaborated with numerous world-famous directors from both America and around the globe, including Terrence Malick himself.

The Book of Vision tells the story of Eva, a young and promising doctor, who suddenly abandons a brilliant career to study the history of medicine, leaving her past behind. During her "escape" Eva meets Henry, the tutor with whom she works on "The Book of Vision," a text by Joahn Anmuth, an 18th century Prussian doctor, which contains the hopes, fears and dreams of more than 1,800 patients. The events of the doctor will become one with those of Eva, in a game of mirrors between past and present.
