Il Capo | Yuri Ancarani

“Marble quarries are places so unbelievable and striking, they almost feel like they are big theaters or sets.” says Yuri Ancarani, the filmmaker behind the excerpt from the documentary, Il Capo (The Chief). Ancarani follows a quarry boss in Carrara, (Italy) as he guides his men through the extraction process, using a silent language of gesture and sign. “I was so taken by the chief, watching him work,” he says. “How he can move gigantic marble blocks using enormous excavators, but his own movements are light, precise and determined”.
