Directed by Ermanno Olmi | 1978

With Luigi Ornaghi, Francesca Moriggi, Omar Brignoli

Italian cinema’s great humanist, Ermanno Olmi, won a much-deserved Palme d’Or at Cannes for this monumental vision of peasant life in 19th-century Lombardy. An almost documentary-like evocation of everyday struggle and endurance, The Tree of Wooden Clogs achieves a sublime transcendence thanks to its gorgeous, painterly visuals and profound empathy for the ordinary, extraordinary people it depicts.

“Everything about the small village life in The Tree of Wooden Clogs speaks to me—the tactile elements, the peasant’s chores, the long days of working and the fireside companionship at night.”

—Kelly Reichardt
