Author's statement: I left myself very guided by the case, which I find more and more fundamental protagonists in everything I do: I have rarely moved sounds to other images. I chose the images and then I am amazed, listening to the sound, to find interesting ideas (eg "The 400 shots of Truffaut", from which an extract is heard). The idea is a musical, rhythmic, moving film (a bit like in one of my first films: "Going back to domestic reliefs") and the ordering criterion was the breath of my son's sleep, which I used as a leitmotiv in various passages (returning to the generating breath of "Greisttmo"); there are my hair on the lens, the subjective, the dreamlike deletions of "1510 - dream on printed paper with video" (everything started with the work of painting on frames, in 2016). There is voyeurism (of "I see") that distances oneself from its beautiful prisons (the graceful railings) looking beyond. There is a strong presence of the night (as in "Concerto Metafisico" and in "Luna in Capricorno") in the constant "Investigation ...". What happens is a rationalization of what is exorcised in films as in dreams.
Author's statement: The archival pictures, painted, together with the memories and the intimate present, constitute the private part, essential to the film, conceived musically, rhythmically; the ordering criterion was my son's breath, while sleeping, which I used as a leitmotif in various passages. The words that make the soundtrack, previously composed by Dario Agazzi, contrast with the daily, private archive images, cooling them and creating contrapuntal ties with them: listing the complexes of Freudian psychoanalysis in an impersonal way and investigating perhaps the unresolved fears that are transmitted from generation to generation, like those complexes in which the self mysteries are hidden.
There is also what happens outside: the camera spies a neighbor, tries to capture the lunar eclipse of 2018, the streets of the city so familiar, that can become enemies during a panic crisis.
The drama hides the comedy - it contains its subtle contradictions. The metaphysical investigation and yearning is held back, suggested, conducted by associations of ideas, organized only by a musical breath, parts of a discourse that can never reach completeness.
I let myself be guided by chance, which I find increasingly fundamental protagonist in what I do.
Will Fences go headlong into a fate shared by his idol Kerouac, doomed to a lonesome beauty and immense suffering of his own making? Or will he resolve to kick addiction and self-doubt, find love and family, and be redeemed in his new greatest masterpiece yet?

A Fast Of Longing
A MARRIAGE STORY
A couple's relationship is tested when emotions run hot, fall out is inevitable. Can the true meaning of love save their marriage?
Shot in the uncharted streets of Mexico City, Mijo is a colourful and fun fashion film inspired by the pachucos fashion from the 40s. The film is a collaboration with independent local artists, showcasing traditional Mexican tailoring, fashion, music and illustrations all in one project. Channeling the city's edgy and urban spirit, Mijo reinterprets the myth of King Midas through a modern Mexican lens.
The word Mijo is a contraction of the Spanish words mi and hijo, meaning my son. This is a term of endearment which roughly translates as darling or dear used in Spanish-speaking countries to refer to someone younger.

The Movement - Francesca Marchisio
The protagonist's thoughts run through a stream of consciousness freely inspired by the principles of thermodynamics, reversible transformations become the key to a more sustainable attitude towards our planet and to create new value from what already exists.
In "The Movement" fashion and dance dialogue together through surreal atmospheres to understand how important it is to act consciously.
Focusing specifically on long-distance relationships and how so much of the relationship lies in a shared vision of the future, “Orange Tree” explores the vast amounts of time actually spent alone dreaming of that other person in the relationship, imagining what your lives might be like one day.
A Feast That Never Comes
The result is work that functions not as declarative, but rather as interrogative, always leaving the listener with more questions than answers. To suppose that an artist has all the answers is hubris at its most incessant and troubling. Here, we can’t find a singular truth, because art must reflect life. Instead, you are invited to grapple with the same questions that the creator struggles with.
The musical, lyrical, and visual motifs that repeat throughout the project may be taken as clues to the artist’s intent. But from there, you’re on your own. The only intent that prevails in A Feast That Never Comes is that of openness and investigation; there is no right answer, but there’s also no right question. You are hereby invited to ask your own questions, and provide your own answers. The work remains fundamentally unfinished without you.

Gravity (Music Video)
The story is metaphorically represented in a love theme, we can see the protagonist leaving earth (reality) to the endless space trying to find his lover (the purpose). It's a journey with no returning back, a one-way ticket to the unknown.
