Il Capo, (2010) portrays the symphonic conductor-like movement of a Carrara stone-quarry foreman who majestically guides workers and their excavators to extract and displace massive hunks of marble. Framed by a stunning landscape, Yuri Ancarani’s camera closely follows the “boss,” his rough hands, including several stubbed fingers, making a wordless, gestural language the heart of the film.
