LES DIEUX CHANGEANTS
Italy, 2021, 3′ 48”
An experimental short film which depicts the destruction and collapse of ancient Greek and Roman statues. It creates a visually intriguing legacy: the static millenary beauty of those marbles being suddenly put into motion by a physical event, the hit of a bullet. Realized with refined CGI, philosophical and thought-provoking, the meaning of Les Dieux Changeants is left open to interpretation.
