Beyond the Wolves

Ennio Guerrato
I, 2024, col., 74’
Italian o.v.

World Premiere

Odd rhythms, surprising music and a group of musician friends reveal an unconventional artist and composer: Alfredo Lacosegliaz. Lacosegliaz embraced the music of Eastern Europe well before it became fashionable. Among the interviews are those of Paolo Rumiz, Carlo Muscatello, Fabio Zoratti, Gabriele Centis and Moni Ovadia.

Musician and composer Alfredo Lacosegliaz began his musical journey in the Trieste of the 1970s, negotiating physical and ideological frontlines, and finding a balance between the diverse cultural souls that had coexisted for centuries in the city. He embraced the music of Eastern Europe well before it became fashionable. Interviews with musicians, directors and authors who collaborated with him reveal his nature as a human being and as an artist. This narrative is accompanied by the original music he composed, characterised by odd rhythms, revealing an unconventional figure whose artistic and musical legacy has been left open for those who are curious to explore it and take it further.

“The film’s intention is to create the conditions for Alfredo Lacosegliaz’s musical work to be transformed into a common legacy, so that all his compositions do not end up in a drawer but become a collective property, a living and changing work.” (E. Guerrato)
