Le Quattro Volte (The Four Times) is an ineffable meditation on the mysterious cycles of life. Set in Italy's mountainous region of Calabria, it traces the path of one goat-herder's soul, as it passes from human to animal to vegetable to mineral. In gorgeous long takes Frammartino captures the daily routines of the herder, a baby goat, an imperious tree and a humble charcoal kiln.


Michelangelo Frammartino was born in Milan to Calabrian parents in 1968. In 1991, he enrolled in the Architecture Faculty of the Politecnico di Milano. Between 1994 and 1997, he attended Milan’s film school, Civica Scuola del Cinema, for which he produced video-art installations and worked as a set designer for films and video clips. He also shot several short films: Tracce (1995), L’Occhio e lo Spirito (1997), BIBIM (1999), Scappa Valentina (2001), Io Non Posso Entrare (2002). His first feature Il Dono premiered at the Locarno Film Festival in 2003. His following film Le Quattro Volte (2010) was selected at the Director’s Fortnight in Cannes, where it won the Label Europa Cinema. Since 2005, he has been teaching filmmaking at the University of Bergamo. In December 2013, he held a workshop at the University of Calabria. His 2021 film Il Buco was selected for the main competition at the 78th Venice International Film Festival, where it received positive reviews and won the Special Jury Prize.
