FilmELEMENTS stars with dawn, when the silence over the sea is broken by sirens and the call of birds. Fishermen steer past the black cliffs of Stromboli. Lava erupts from the active volcano, a dark line defining the boundary of the elements. Human toil and the forces of nature create a dynamic film about labor, the greatest and holiest task of Man at the foot of the mountain.
