LUPINE

LUPINE

The sunlit journey of high-diving youth in Greece.

A group of three childhood friends travel to the Greek Island of Rhodes, unaccompanied by schedules or itineraries. Featuring the unfiltered conversations between the boys, the film’s documentary-like approach captures honest moments in the rugged sun-drenched terrain.

"Take life lightly, for lightness is not superficial, but gliding above things, not having weights on your heart." - Italo Calvino

“When I first read these words by Italo Calvino, they immediately formed a lasting impact on me”, the film’s director, Luca Werner explains. “I think there are certain moments in our youth where we feel completely light and careless, like we are in a flow. I don’t believe that these moments end when we grow up, I believe from time to time we get a glimpse of them.

As an anecdote of life, Lupine provides an insight into this moment of lightness that Calvino once wrote about.
