«Color is what allows me to let off steam – and that’s how it’s always been. Painting to me is life, it’s fundamental, I can’t live without painting anymore. I can take some breaks, some time off without touching the colors, but then they overwhelmingly pop out again, and painting becomes, once more, fundamental to me. I don’t paint for others, I paint for myself: it’s a way to feel truly alive» Giovanni Neri The story Giovanni always painted, even though life forced him to become a farmer, because painting is a necessary act that allowed him to regain a more intimate vision of the countryside. Authors’ note What we found most interesting at first in Giovanni Neri’s experience is the difficult relationship between the inner necessity that drives him to paint and the context of his life in the countryside, which he experiences as something really distant from his true self. During the days spent at Giovanni’s house in Crespellano, near Bologna, we explored together with him his atelier, the farmed fields, and the wilder and uncultivated lands. Then we asked him to record his voice freely, when alone, and tell something about himself without the afterthought of “appearing.” This is how this short film was created, intertwining some of Giovanni’s reflections about himself, his paintings and the land surrounding his family house. After the production of Wild Lands, Giovanni’s experience became a source of inspiration for a feature film. the authors Gigi Giustiniani Filmmaker.
