The film was shot in summer 2005 in some of the most fascinating dolomitic scenaries, such as the Fanes’ plateau, the S.Nicolò valley in Fassa and Lake Braies.
Except of the three promoters of this cultural project there were involved in the production of the film almost hundred volunteers -as principal actors, extras, collaborators- from the vallies Badia, Gherdëina and Fascia. In the film they speak their own Ladin idiom, so that it results a meeting of linguistic varieties of this very ancient alpine language, Ladin, yet spoken today and acknowledged as minority language. Indeed the presence of different Ladin idioms in the film shows in most of cases a correspondence between the contemporary Ladin idiom spoken by the actors in today’s reality and their place of origin in the legend: the king of Fanes speaks mareo (Ladin of northern Badia valley), the queen of Fanes and Dolasila badiot (Ladin of southern Badia valley), Ey de Net, the prince of the Cajutés and the chiefs of Fanes’ neighbour people fascian (Ladin of Fassa valley), Spina de Mul and Tsicuta gherdëina (Ladin of Gherdëina valley).
The film was produced with the financial support of Television RAI TV Ladina, Television RAI Sender Bozen of Bolzano, Assessorato alle minoranze linguistiche della Regione Trentino – Alto Adige and Foundation Südtiroler Sparkasse.
