Italy, today. Some elderly hunters reminisce about the tale of Luciano.
Luciano lives as a wandering drunkard in a village of Tuscia. Spiteful actions ensue between him and the local prince over the right of passage through a gateway. Fueled by passions and jealousy, Luciano commits the unforgivable.
Alessio Rigo de Righi and Matteo Zoppis (1986) are two Italian-American directors. Their collaboration started with the short documentary Belva Nera (2013) and the award-winning documentary Il Solengo (2015). Their work focuses on folk tales and legends of the peasant tradition, interrogating the imperfections of oral tradition that end up giving rise to new stories. Their films have been featured in numerous festivals and won awards at Cinéma du Réel, Doclisboa and Torino Film Festival. The Tale of King Crab is their first fiction feature film.
