About the film

Primitivo is a parody about human evolution. The film explores in a metaphoric way the swings and flows between the wild and the civilized inherent to our human nature and how the growing speed of things is shaping ourselves.

The film also reflects about the mechanisms of desire and its consequences. With an ironic bend at the end, the story tell us about how the driving force that give us life and motivates us to improve could be the same that can corrupt us, in other words, how sometimes progress could be regression too.
