ATLAS OF UNCERTAINTY
Director: Massimo Vito Avantaggiato
Producer: Massimo Vito Avantaggiato
Atlas of Uncertainty is an experimental music video based on the representation of 4 Classical elements, that typically refer to the concepts in Ancient Greece of water, fire, earth and aether, which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances.
The music that accompanies the video is a sonic continuum ranging from unaltered natural sounds to entirely new sounds - or, more poetically -- from the real world to the realm of the imagination.
“Atlas of Uncertainty” is an electronic music video in which a microcosm of sounds, explored through some csound interfaces, becomes the hyletic universe of the work.
Heterogeneous sound materials are explored through various techniques (granular, subtractive). The sounds and the images are here combined in well- identifiable gestures.

'The Other woman', Zizi's dream
Director: Zizi Rincolisky
Producer: Studio Brugmann Film, Brussels
In Zizi's dream, like in any dream, the logic of time ans action as well as cultural censorship is abolished. Bizarre, senseless actions occur simultaneously to 'normal' ones and no one in the dream is taking notice. Repressed sexual desire can go wild and no guilt or shame about it is felt.
Thus focus of the film «the Other woman» is on the return of the repressed in its disguised form, on what does not make sense in the dream. The latter can be located in the tension between the superficiality of the luxurious perfectionism of the bourgeoisie and the real, the impossible, the unbearable to look at. In the film, this tension or agony manifests itself on the body of the woman, which is marked by the scars of the contemporary self-mutilation and an outdated ecstatic fit of the 19/20th century, both reasons for young women for being committed to psychiatric hospital. The message of the acting outs, ecstasy and scarification is and was the same: to catch the gaze of the other, to break with the indifference of the household tribe.
