VOLTO SORPRESO AL BUIO

by Paolo GIOLI
1995 / 16mm / b&w / silent / 1S / 8' 00

From old plates of an anonymous
photographer who worked in the 50s, I extracted this impossible film
(plates that had contributed to the composition of one of my little
books with the title Sconosciuti [Persons Unknown].
Frame by frame, plate by plate, with strips of reflected light and strips
of tens of faces, I tried to bring them into a single cinematic stream,
thinking about a solitary, single face emerging from the darkness.
