documentary short film / 2014 / 17’
Terrified by death, at nighttime men pray till the sun rise.
Although the inescapable destiny the Fate set, every nightfall
the prayer keeps being said, and propitiatory fires burn on the
ridge of a mountain for the night go by again. Christian
religion forges our imaginary. Even secular we are fascinated
by rituals as seductive and evocative practices. The film aims to create a personal and imaginary liturgia,
which represents religion as an unceasing and circular
reaction to the fear of death.
