Among many things, an artist is also the person who captures, filters and tells the feelings, the tensions and the attitudes of a community. It’s the case of Bob Corn, an independent musician and the protagonist of the touching documentary realised by Giulia Natalia Comito and Tommaso Cassinis. Through the songs and the musician’s commentary, the directors achieve two levels of narration: the collective tragedy of the population victim of the earthquake that destroyed the area of Emilia and the artist (witness and singer of the tragedy) and his music’s intimate changes.
