“‘ALL IS SILENT’. This is the opening line to the new short film by Film Maker Frederick Shelbourne and Art Director Frances Von Flemming. It begins with a piece of Italian literature, a phrase from the melodious poet Giosuè Carducci in his harmonious Ode al Clitumno; a classical poem about a place that exists in a secret spot in Umbria, a place that has been the inspiration of great poets  like Lord Byron. …The film is narrated through a multitude of senses where an entwining moving image , music, literature and photography portray the essence of the story line.

Narrated through the eyes of Filippo Scarafia (Italian actor from the film ‘Terraferma’ by Emanuele Crialese – Film presented at the 68th Venice International Film Festival, winning the special jury prize) it is a passionate  journey, discovering a mystic presence that is Umbria, luring its audience to come and find the green lands of this incredible region of Italy.”
