Umbrian Voices


A film capturing the faces of people of Umbria, where Lijn resides a few months every year.

“The camera is focused on faces, recording almost imperceptible changes, sometimes moving away from the ‘witness’ to capture both ancestral and childlike gestures, while the sweet sounds of life: memories modulated by the accents and dialects of both old and new inhabitants of the land of Francis of Assisi..” Alessandro Vestrelli, quoted in ‘Liliane Lijn: Light and Memory’ published by Thames and Hudson.
