The Challenge

Year2016 Duration69 min. DirectorYuri Ancarani

Yuri Ancarani once more shows his ability to enter hidden worlds: a marble quarry, a robot with state of the art technology in an operating theatre, a diving group preparing its descent to the bottom of the ocean... and this time, the hermetic world of Arabic opulence. He shows us through flight, in this case of the falcons that have become a luxury in the oil countries. Sheikhs who travel in a Lamborghini and stroke a jaguar whilst bidding and paying 24,000 dollars for one of these birds on their cell phone, whilst, ironies of fate, we see how the falcons no longer fly with their own wings, but they contemplate the clouds from the window inside the private jet that carries them. Ancarani in his ironic observational portrait tells us that the hunting of these birds of prey is none other than image, which puts the owners in the sky and traps the animals alive.
