The Bible: GenesisIn “Genesis”, screenwriter and director Ermanno Olmi tells the story of creation, the fall of man and the flood. Nature comes to life at the first light of dawn. Adam discovers love with Eve - and tastes the forbidden fruit. Their sons Cain and Abel play out a story that darkens the Creation for all times. Angered by the corruption of Cain's progeny, God vows to begin anew with Noah and his family.
The ark is built and the animals led into their pens. The rain floods the land. When the waters recede, the dove sent by Noah returns with an olive branch - the sign of a new life and of a new pact with God. The double role of Noah and the narrator is played by Omero Antonutti.
“Genesis” was shot in Morocco's Atlas Mountains between September and November 1993.
