Using fiction as a cover, I embark on a journey of personal discovery, where the immaterial is represented in carefully crafted images bringing the personal to the public domain. What animates my productions is the idea that film can be a dynamic space capable of generating new ideas and long-lasting reflection in the audience, prompted by an emotional response to the images on screen.
In my films, I put aside the classical three-act structure and refrain from imposing a cause-and-effect logic in order to follow, and intuit, the core theme. This approach creates tension between audience and film, disrupting the delivery of a direct storyline and allowing me to create a work driven by symbol and allegory.
Cinema’s true nature is found in its visual rather than expository possibilities. The weight carried by the image, transforms the nature of the spoken word by altering, distorting or elevating its value; often, it simply suppresses its presence, exposing their symbolic function.
In my intent to reveal the key significance of the film mostly on the visual level, I continually experiment with visual elements, trying to reconstruct and recreate a reality that remains formally true to nature but that, through contrast and juxtaposition, evoke an aura of intimacy and secrecy that allows for a moment of personal exploration and self-awareness.
