Roberto Nieddu, Director of CRN Productions is proud to have been associated with the film Letters from the Desert, directed by Michela Occhipinti in the capacity of line producer.
 
Letters from the Desert (Eulogy to Slowness)
 
 
Hari is a postman. Every day for 20 years, he has been walking through the Thar desert to deliver letters to remote villages, holding the reins of secluded lives that talk about loves, weddings, successes and deaceses. His life and that of his big family are marked by the passing of the monsoons, by events that are entwined between the ink bestowed by those who write letters and Hari's walks, following the rythm of the desert and of a slow life, made of friendships, of smiles and solid relations, shaped by wind, by sun and rain. Until a strange metallic tower is built in the village and things start changing.
