Mandala: studio per un’installazione
2018 / loop / Italy / 5’

"Mandala: studio per un’installazione" brings together images of documentation of the residency program in a visual structure that reorganizes the time and space of research, as well as collecting its essence, just as happens in sacred diagrams of oriental origin. The video, imagined as a database in progress, is presented here as a visual study.

Cosimo Terlizzi,
La Benedizione degli animali
2013 / HD/ Italy / 7’

A cow looks in the mirror, a giant pig rests in a puddle of mud, a rabbit's foot hung like a talisman, a pheasant announces with his hand the arrival of the stranger.
On this farm full of animals, the threat of death is near. But in its place, a rite of blessing takes place, thus celebrating the drama and beauty of life.

Murgia - Episodio #1
2008/ HD/ Italy / 19’

A road movie that reveals the origin and the actuality of a part of Italy forgotten and left to itself with acumen and irony
