CAPREAE Revisited

Witness the man who raves at the wall

Making the shape of his question to Heaven

Whether the sun will fall in the evening

Will he remember the lesson of giving

Set the Controls for the heart of the sun

The heart of the sun…

Visualising the Invisible

MONSTER’S Press Release

for La Jolla International Fashion Film Festival (LJIFFF) 2017

My sister Maddalena Annunziata, a professional Fashion Designer, approached me one day with the desire to create a movie, which could represent the woman conceived by her last personal collection: “Monster”.

Her methods are very creative; since I found a lot of themes in her sketch-books related to an important contemporary issue: the creation of an artificial human being that could one day substitute us together with all our deficiencies.

Our tremendous difficulties for realizing this project, gathered around the following three points:

I.) We had to shoot in Munich, which turned out to be an incredibly wealthy, but nevertheless NOT-creative environment, since we had absolutely no money.

II.) Fashion is doomed to be superficial. Consequently many people were not willing to believe that we were going to do something related to fashion in a personal, not conventional way that wouldn’t care about cliches.

III.) Finally, the greatest difficulty was due to my sister’s designs being the expression of very abstract concepts, which are practically impossible to visualize. In order to bring to life the kind of woman she was imagining, we had to find a visual strategy which would transmit the required impression, without being to obvious in our conceptual principles. We had to look at everything from above, and also pay great attention to detail.
