FUORI TARGET (Missing the target, 2008, S16mm, 3’)

A shooter with a gun insn’t able to keep his concentration while he’s training...

Un tiratore con la pistola non riesce a mantenere la concentrazione durante un allenamento...

The explanation for his diffusiveness isn’t the only surprise in this beautiful formal pun”. (Mezipatra FF, Prague, 2008)

In "Fuori Target" I was struck immediately by the precise method of storytelling. The image was stark and intent was crystal clear. The film forced the viewer to question his assumptions of gender, aggression and power”. (Lauren LoGiudice)

The video is part of the Tractatus logico-phileroticus’ project.
