Original archival 16mm film transferred to SD video.

Il Contratto:
A video art, currently in production, based on a feature length 16mm film, IL CONTRATTO, directed by Giorgio Mangiamele, with a group of migrant actors, in early 1950’s.

The project explores analogies and correspondences between the unfinished silent images of the film source and sound-images, reconstructed in another time and place – like abandoned houses left in ruins, and re inhabited by foreign, itinerant, provisional occupants.
