Pardi di domani: Concorso internazionale

Silica

Australia, United Kingdom  ·  2017  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  22'  ·  o.v. English

Combining 35mm photography of former sets of science-fiction films with computer-generated imagery, Silica explores territorial constructs and the boundaries of the real and the mediated in an opal mining town in the South Australian desert. Charting the journey of a film location scout, notions of settlement and belonging are investigated through images of a town in the midst of abandonment.

Eligible as Locarno’s short film nominee for the European Film Awards 2017.
