Life and death are a carnival

Video, Political / Social, Birth, Death, Short film, 4:57
Sometimes life seems like a series of random events.
Only death creates a sense of continuity and intensity.
The sliding images make each one of us a centre of observation where the tragic and the comic side are blended.
Very often the roles blend together and behind the masks and the symbols the soul of carneval moves.
A soul which dances and plays without identity, involves or estranges, aggregates or dissolves, resembling a joyful tragic joke.
In several ancient myths the orgy of masks represented the chaos before the cosmogony.
In this way the characters behind which the human actions hide get a meaning, by admitting a rebirth, an order restored and then again the disguise, by confusing life and death and making boundaries ephemeral, up to the point where space and time, light and darkness get confused in a sequence of events where the game, hard to be recognized, remain the only leitmotif.
