PANOPTICON 1 IN COMPETITION AT RIBALTA FESTIVAL
My video Planet Pink / Panopticon 1, is in completion at Ribalta Experimental Film Festival.
My Panopticon is a landscape where the waste of humanity accumulates, the bundled and forgotten things that contain their destiny. A dump of hopes, passions, and relics of a creative and devouring species. Our memories then become ballast, poison, and detritus. We are a virus, as Agent Smith said in The Matrix, grasshoppers mesmerized by the sound of the herd's blind meal. And so the lines taken from the iconic ballad 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, become an obsessive and alienating chant, punctuating the fall towards the abyss/origin of our civilization. Because we were unable to overcome technological adolescence, and Culture, which was to save us, turned out to be the Trojan horse of our animal Nature. Ribalta Experimental Film Festival is a new event completely dedicated to experimental cinema in Italy. The festival will take place in Vignola (MO), Emilia-Romagna at the headquarters of the Ribalta club, with the screenings at the Bristol Cinema in Savignano sul Panaro (MO). Its purpose is to give voice to a kind of cinema that doesn't have one. A cinema that is new, innovative and avant-gard.
