Italian filmmaker Manuele Cecconello has included multiple tracks from The Drive to Uqbar’s “Station No. 2: Myasnoye” for the soundtrack to his film; “Aeterna melancholia”, a poetic homage to filmmakers Andrei Tarkovsky and Ingmar Bergman. His work will soon hit the film festival circuit.

In Cecconello’s words: “Islands. Silence. Loneliness.
In 2010 I made a trip to Gotland, the swedish island.
I wanted to live – even if for a few days – in those enigmatic landscapes which have been scenery to important films for my life. Last Andrej Tarkovskij’s work, “The Sacrifice”. And then “The Shame”, “Through a Glass Darkly”, “Persona”, by Ingmar Bergman. Aeterna melacholia is a meditation about artistic creation, self investigation and hope.”
