The sun does not shine in the Bergell for a long time, a narrow alpine valley in southern Switzerland. For three whole winter months, the villages at the foot of the majestic mountain giants lie in shadow. Not really a good condition for painting—the art of light. Yet, it is precisely here that one of the most important artist families of the country lived: Giovanni Giacometti with his wife Annetta and their four highly talented children Alberto, Diego, Ottilia, and Bruno. Alberto, the oldest, was to become one of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. His extremely thin and long figures are probably familiar to many. How Alberto's work is connected to this valley, to the work of his father, and to living with his siblings—Swiss documentary filmmaker Susanna Fanzun distills this into an impressive, tender, and at times touching family saga.
