Uccello

Art Direction & Film

Written & Directed

Music by Cosma

 

A character wearing a primitive mask, decked out like a shaman holding a thyrsus (a Bacchic staff) in his hand is travelling through landscapes devoid of any human presence, referring to a kind of “pre-historic time”. On his initiatory path, he comes upon a Dervish dance, and has a dreamlike encounter with a philosopher owl, somewhere between a clay sculpture and waves…

 

Uccello, in his cry, is an enigmatic fable which, with a desperate wit, conveys the intrinsic aspects of the human condition. Such a quest is futile, and we should make the most of the pleasures offered by life in the present.
