L. City

 

A man remembers his lost love through suggestions and atmospheres of a city...

 

Like lines of a poem, images, music and sounds reflect an interior state of mind, with the disrupted, non-linear structure that remembering can have.

 

"L.City" is made with thousands of photo cutouts, objects, lights and shadows animated frame by frame with the help of a multiplane structure under a 16mm Oxberry camera stand.

 

"L.City" is now part of a DVD compilation of poetry based pieces published by Rattapallax.

Train

 

Luminous oil pastels on stilled video images, in frame by frame animation, recapture the film-maker’s impressions, in this all too brief journey through the Italian countryside.

Lo Sguardo Italiano

 

An Italian artist who emigrated to the United States looks back at his native country through an animated film made with thousands of hand colored oil painted photographs.

 

Independently produced, and created over eleven years as a visual poem that bridges film-making language and visual arts, “Lo Sguardo Italiano” portrays the intoxicating natural, historical and artistic beauty of Italy as well as it denounces the profound disillusionment, moral and cultural decay in contemporary Italian life.
