The Langhe, a pleasant land, rippled with gently-rolling hills, beautiful. A natural paradise in short; is it truly so?
Some voices stand out from the crowd: those of Maria Teresa Mascarello, Silvio Pistone and Mauro Musso, who tell us a slightly different story.
The story of a world that is succumbing to overbuilding, of a soil that is being impoverished and used up by aggressive agriculture. The story of a land where some people were a bit “too ingenious”.
As the director is keen to stress, the structure of the documentary is intentionally unorthodox: the space left to criticism is reduced while more emphasis is given to the positive role models of those who, sometimes with difficulty, decided to choose a different life .
The booklet version includes the book by Federico Ferrero, with an introduction on how the documentary was made, the stories of Silvio, Mauro and Maria Teresa, and an interview with the fourth Heretic: Beppe Rinaldi, producer of Barolo.
