« In Stone Breaker – explain the directors – art and personal biography are inseparably intertwined. The story at the center of the film is inspired by a news story a few summers ago, the death at work of the Apulian laborer Paola Clemente, and by the absurd coincidence with the death of our paternal grandmother, who died working in the same fields in 1958. And , like Giuseppe’s father in the film, our paternal grandfather too, before leaving for Turin in the 1960s, was a “stone breaker”. The film is first and foremost an attempt to regain possession of a soul, that of our never known grandmother, through the story and the body of another woman. But it is also a film of fatherly love in which the themes of death, violence, fear, love, revenge emerge pure. “.
