Behind The Hill

“The birth of science was the death of superstition”
Thomas Huxley (Darwin’s Bulldog).

Man always searches answers.
Throughout history, throughout the ages, we are continually looking for ways to justify our existence, reasons to justify what our mind could not. Long time ago, some truths were taken for granted.
At that time, men and women of faith said to hold the cure for all ills, to have the answers to all concerns. They were masters with knowledge passed from generation to generation, holders of a truth that ordinary mortals could only imagine without never understanding. Nowadays, they seem to have disappeared, thrown by the civilisation to obscurantism, remain there, hidden from the gaze of the modern world.
Our conservative society and its beliefs inspired me to describe characters and scenes often overlooked by the modern world ruled by science and technology. The characters and situations often relate to nature and superstition, “Behind The Hill” describes the struggle of man’s will to master the elements, to mold the world to his granted truth and to explain it through his ingenuity.
