Italy 2014 / 7’
Panorama is the first chapter of a trilogy on the city. The video is a review on a polis that stretches away over an infinite global space with no more uninhabited places nor frontiers where we can take refuge. In this landscape we cannot see any way of readmission for those who have once been excluded, and this recalls imaginary worlds in search of a balance.
Regia: Gianluca Abbate
Audio: Virginia Eleuteri Serpieri
