An inaccurate distance

Video Full HD, 15’22”
2014

The video is an attempt to grasp the relationship the translator Riccardo Bertani has with the notion of distance.
Bertani worked as a farmer all his life and has never visited the countries he has written about. The camera tries to portray the intimacy of his house and look for distance within his domestic space.

The video has been realised with the support of nctm e l’arte.
