VOGLIO VIVERE SENZA VEDERMI

VOGLIO VIVERE SENZA VEDERMI
by Bruno Bigoni, Francesca Lolli
Country: Italy
Year: 2019
Duration: 70'


In a world governed by violence and indifference, death decides to try to live, experimenting with the temporary cession of its power. It is disarmed when it discovers love. And only murder will reestablish the proper distance, allowing it to change form and style, to once again exert its power, using its body like a weapon of conquest. But it will be overwhelmed by reality and left breathless.

Declaration

film director

“We narrated its power and violent and provocative spirit, but also its core fragile and defenseless side, searching for a contemporary and free gaze, starting from Artaud, the ideal father of this film. We inherited from him the need to explode collective abscesses and to bring to the surface all the evil. But we haven’t forgotten the salvific function of art, and this explains the presence of the Living Theatre, its political and theatrical vision, which tried to accomplish this mission on two parallel and interdependent planes, proposing itself as a model of community founded on the anarchic principles of equality, work, solidarity. Lastly, the presence of Dreyer’s cinema, so dry, essential, necessary.”
