DEL TUFFARSI E DELL'ANNEGARSI

by Paolo GIOLI
1972 / 16mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 10' 25

The film relates the beliefs the author held
for a certain time concerning water and diving into it. It all begins with a dive
and with a whirlpool that never existed; two visual prototypes on the basis
of which the mischievous view of the author created a filmic inversion of water
and its flow, of the diver and of the imaginary whirlpools.
This expansion, unforeseen in spontaneous natural phenomena is, however,
foreseen by the very little spontaneous nature of the diver, who, after repeated
efforts, ends by realizing a plunge which is at once fatal and desired.
