MaTerre VR Experience is a five-episodes collective film unique in the international film scene that blends together moving images and poetry through VR 360° technology. The work is the result of the Euro-Mediterranean Poetry Film Workshop that took place in Matera between April and May 2019.
The five episodes of the film come from the encounter between 5 filmmakers and 5 poets: Gianluca Abbate (Italy) and Eduard Escoffet (Spain) for Cos endins, Domenico Brancale (Italy) and Blerina Goce (Albania) for Ate ca tu, Vito Foderà (Italy) and Yolanda Castaño (Spain) for Mai terra, Giuseppe Schillaci (Italy) and Aurélia Lassaque (France) for Transhumance, Elena Zervopoulou (France/Greece) and Nilson Muniz (Brazil/Portugal) for BeLeaf.
The project was born from the need to try to radically rethink the imaginary of the land of the “Sassi” through a combination of innovation and tradition, orality and technology.

MaTerre VR Experience tour
Materre, Laterre, Uneterre
A movie about the movie
Duration: 40 minutes
Format: HD, color, stereo
Materre, Laterre, Uneterre is a documentary shot by the students of the filmmaking and screenplay Master's Degree Course in Cinema, Photography, Performance of the University of Calabria (Department of Humanities Studies), under the guidance of Prof. Bruno Roberti, within of the MaTerre project, VR360 film made by Rete Cinema Basilicata in the framework of Matera Capital of European Culture 2019.
This film is a sort of tripartite mosaic. The first part is dedicated to the historical, social, landscaping, cinematographic memory of South Italy. Starting from the “Southern question”, from its assumptions and developments, from the poetic and political suggestions of a great man of the twentieth century
as Rocco Scotellaro, here are recalled unforgettable images of great Italian filmmakers such as Francesco Rosi, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Luchino Visconti, Vittorio De Seta and Mario Martone in order to reconstruct the civil and film-poetic "temperature" of an entire territory of the soul, of which Matera and Basilicata become an emblematic mirror. The words of the poet Lello Voce are the guiding thread of this part. The second part is the report of the building of the MaTerre project made for Matera Capital of European Culture 2019. Introduced by the creator and artistic director (of the film area) Antonello Faretta, and through interviews and images, we enter in the “workshop" of this 360-degree "film experience".
The third part is a "reasoned backstage" of the VR film composed of five segments (Poetry, Matera, Identity, Earth, Migration) in which the artists engaged in the work reflect, speaking on the camera, their thoughts on the main themes, and today more urgent than ever in the Euro-Mediterranean scenario, which move and animate the mosaic of the five films contained in the 360 ° of Materre VR Experience.
