The documentary, produced by Art Show and 8 Road Film in collaboration with the U. Bonino & MS Pulejo Foundation – Gazzetta del Sud and Sicrumi, Facing the physical suffering, disabling therapies, pain and uncertainty of a serious illness, then transforming them into works of art and a new lifeline. This is the human and artistic adventure of Fabio Pellato, a well-known figure in Messina, his city, who from a building contractor has become an iron sculptor.
The year is 2006. Insomnia is hitting hard due to chemotherapy and one night, as an antidote to physical suffering, Fabio chooses to go out to sea with his little boat, mooring at Torre Faro, the tip of Sicily that runs towards Calabria, in the Strait of Messina. And there, at the mercy of the sea and the currents, between Scylla and Charybdis, as he watches the waves he manages to tame thoughts and ghosts and draw inspiration to face disease.
It’s dawn, Fabio is back on Earth. He runs into a group of fishermen and sees some dead fish on the shoals, which he now observes with fresh eyes. He would like to take them back to the sea, to bring them back to life again, but this is not possible. Instinctively, he takes a white stone from the shore, takes it home, and with a screwdriver makes a carved cerac: his first fish. From that moment on, begins his artistic adventure that will lead him to produce iron sculptures of fish, octopuses and other marine animals, all in life size, with one goal: to make them immortal.
