Flavio Sciolè - Blood 70

2:17, 2012, Experimental
A video 4 Donald Cammell.
Sinossi: Il video segue-incrocia il Ciclo fotografico ‘Performance4Cammell’ che vuole essere un omaggio all’artista Donald Cammell. Nell’approccio al progetto ho sviluppato principalmente il suo finale d’Arte e Vita. Un suicidio riverberato in uno specchio e guardato, rimirato fino all’ultimo respiro. Il tutto è stato filtrato-performato da atti, filtri fotografici e non, emozioni.
