(Italy, Chile / 2019 / 70’)

The most tangible of all the visible mysteries: fire. From the ashes of an old documentary, Maura Morales Bergmann feels an urgent call within herself: to reconstruct the art and life of her aunt Carmengloria Morales, a Chilean painter whose traces today are only blurred shadows. The lush garden of her home in Italy and the breathtakingly coloured landscapes of Chile mirror the suspended spaces of the canvas, and the painter digs into her past to reach the very core of her creativity, her relationship with music and the vital force of her art. A loving portrait of a passionate and curious artist, who never stopped trying to outdo herself, aiming higher and higher.
