Biti mrtev ali biti živ je eno in isto / Essere morti o essere vivi è la stessa cosa / To Be Dead or To Be Alive Is The Same Thing

Biti mrtev ali biti živ je eno in isto / Essere morti o essere vivi è la stessa cosa / To Be Dead or To Be Alive Is The Same Thing

Synopsis

A frame comes alive in the drawing, transforming, colouring and regenerating itself. A journey through some of Pasolini's works in search of a type of comedy that is physical, almost jester-like. Totò's gestures, Ninetto Davoli's laughing eyes, Silvana Mangano's physicality. Out of 1200 drawings he made based on Pasolini's films, the director chose half to create this visual poem.
