Fabios Scacchioli, Vincenzo Core

2011 | 0:13:45

The beginning is another film: an American early- 60's, dissected and demolished, whose tortured and "subverted" images are organized in precarious, fragile and ever-changing structures, in multiple plotlines criss-crossing in a state of constant collapse.

Sirocco (Shluq)

Hisham Bizri
Egypt, USA

2012 | 0:15:00

Shluq or Sirocco (easterly desert wind) is the fable of a man who faces potential doom. Life for him is a mystery and it is impossible to understand, leading him into melancholic paralysis. His thoughts wander through the vastness of the desert, a symbol of eternity, and at the same time to see himself powerless in his petty sphere of action, and powerless from the very mystery of his thought. The embitterment, callousness, grossness, brutality of his paralysis is imposed on his pure and noble soul, turning his life into a profound tragedy.
