Unusual Journey 

Marcantonio Lunardi - 3'



This video talks about the unusual journey of an African boy and the paradoxes of its narration in the Occident. An African man swimming in front of a camera connected to a TV that shows the image to a Caucasian man sitting in a armchair. This is the short-circuit represented by Lunardi following the path of political asylum seekers in Europe. In this video the stories of each of them become, in the face of public opinion, a dress from which they can no longer get rid of. Exactly like the thermal blankets that envelop them upon their arrival.
