The Challenge by Yuri Ancarani @ Edinburgh International Film Festival



The Challenge by Yuri Ancarani @ Edinburgh International Film Festival

Italian visual artist Yuri Ancarani's debut feature is documentary as exotic objet d'art. (Variety)

In the West, falconry was a prevailing passion of the medieval aristocracy, but its prestige continues undiminished in contemporary Arab culture. A tradition that today allows its practitioners to keep a close rapport with the desert, despite their predominantly urban lifestyle. In Qatar, in the glaring light of an empty landscape, following flight lines and lures, the film recounts a strange kind of “desert weekend”, in which technological and anthropological microcosms hang in the air, like the falcon, drifting on the irreversible currents of images.

Yuri Ancarani is an Italian visual artist. His work has been acknowledged both in the realms of cinema and of contemporary art. His last five films have been shown and awarded in more than a hundred international festivals, and in the most important museums of the world. He recently had a solo show at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles.
