L’Ombra di Rasputin

2022 — 27 min — 17+


A hunter, a veterinarian, and a nurse conversing around a surgical table while performing surgery on a wild boar. Different visions of care juxtapose in one ecology where nature is manufactured, harvested, and exploited by human capital. In this frame the wild boar Rasputin is held captive in between imperatives of ecological human regulations; whereas the nature/culture divide is enacted, wilderness is the shadow of human architectures.

  • Pietro Francesco Pingitore

    A visual anthropologist born in Milan, Italy. Pietro studied Art and Humanities in Bologna where he also attended a film school in 2014. In 2020 he started the MA in Visual Anthropology at the Goldsmiths University of London and deepened his interests in manifestations that define what is ‘wild’ in specific territories. As a filmmaker, he wants to approach different ecologies exploring lines traced by the separations between nature and culture, domestic and wild, art and science, behavior and performance, and documentary and fiction.
