Painting, raping with acids each frame, risking the film as the bullfighter risks his life, looking for a VanGoghian sensation of the color through an continuos combination of complementary colors, I tried with this experimental short film to immerse the viewer into the unified field that pervades us and from which fragments of ideas emerge. All shootings are ORIGINAL and taken with Canon EOS 500D (HD) and Chinon Dart 70 (super 8).
