The Tale of King Crab

A Feature film by Alessio Rigo de Righi, Matteo Zoppis

Production year : 2021


    Small town in Italy, end of the 19th century. Luciano, a drunk, accidentally kills his lover during a revolt against the local Prince. To pay for his crime, he is forced into exile on the most remote island in the world, Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego. The hunt for the shipwreck treasure hidden on the island becomes his opportunity for redemption.
    The film tells how this story is recalled today in different versions of the oral tales. In his homeland, some believe Luciano was just a murderer, while others consider him to be a Saint. On the other side of the world, his story has turned into a legend, the Legend of the King Crab.
