Storm

Film expérimental | hdv | couleur | 20:14 | Italie | 2011

«In this glass air bubbles do not trace any world map.» «It seemed so, at first sight but then?» (from Storm dialogues) FIRST SYNOPSIS Two people (two voices) ? in a hotel room using an unknown language ? are talking about the making of a film. LAST SYNOPSIS Two people (two voices) ? in a hotel room using an unknown language ? are talking about the film that we are watching. They are wondering if a storm could kill. Three ?true images? of three real storms that have been filmed by somebody are interrupting, suspending, breaking up. It feels as if someone is falling down, but the fall is not visible. The characters are trying to reconstruct some kind of truth starting from words, conversations, questions and answers: the language. Their gaze ? in a long subjective shot ? is constantly returning images of crossing over in an endless shifting between the inside and the outside. Storm seems to exist close to something ? a window, a word, the film itself ? neither inside nor outside, constantly swinging between what is happening (or not) inside or outside the room, inside or outside the speech, in the objectivity of the (etymological) rule or in the uncertainty of the insight. (Storm is an unknown chapter part of ?F ? Anthology of failure from a survey on the next desert?.)
