Relations between anarchism and the marble industry in the quarries of Carrara, in Italy, the chopped mountains, sculpted in time, lost traces of human activity, are present in the seemingly documentary film work. The absence created by the acts of erasing almost all the quarry equipments relating to the contemporary industry in post-production changes the site towards poetic or post-human landscape.
