The documentary recounts the yearly Easter procession that takes place in Corigliano Calabro, a small village in the south of Italy: from rites performed according to ancestral traditions to the passionate debates to decide who will carry the statue of Our Lady and who will embody Jesus during the procession. PROCESSI thus documents the faith of a village, but also ironically reveals the contrast between the sacred and the inevitably profane, human-like, reality of the celebration.
