Dark Matter (Materia oscura)
Documentary / Italian
In the peaceful, picturesque plains and
mountains of Sardinia, a ‘battle’ rages…
This fascinating ‘cinematic survey’ of Salto
di Quirra, a site used for military training
and rocket testing since the 1950s, weaves
extraordinary footage of rocket launches
from the base’s own archive through the
overheard conversations of local farmers and
a radio broadcast of a geological investigation
of the area. More interested in creating
an impression than delivering the facts,
the result is a haunting attestation to the
incompatibility of the natural world and the
modern military-industrial complex.
