POW (Piss Off, War / 2018 / 9’)



During a war, the battle rages. At the back, the atmosphere seems quieter, but in reality also there you can find hallucinating situations… 

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

POW renews the imaginary of porn with an experimental and brave idea. In opposition to the violence of war, two enemy soldiers let themselves go to hallucinated and consensual experimentation in a natural setting that protects them, where human and not-human, real and unreal mix, provoking in the audience a state of curious confusion” (Best Italian Short Film, Hacker Porn IFF, Roma, Italy 2018). 

“I am part of that power…” says Mephysto in Goethe’s Faust. Even the laughter of the devil echoes through the movie. With a straightforward story, the audience comes to terms here. The metaphorical nature of uniformity and the associated allegories in the common play of the actors is more likely to come with imagination and enjoyment of the diabolical. Here skillfully all the resources of the genre are endeavored, at best, everything that makes cinema so, costume, prop, etc”. (Third Prize Award, Naughty - Frivolous FF Berlin 2019)

Durante una guerra la battaglia infuria. Nelle retrovie l'atmosfera sembra più tranquilla, ma in realtà anche lì si vivono situazioni allucinanti…

"POW rinnova l’immaginario del porno con un’idea sperimentale e coraggiosa. Di fronte alla banalità del male che la violenza della guerra porta con sé, due soldati di fronti opposti si abbandonano alla sperimentazione allucinata e consensuale in una natura che li protegge, dove umano e non umano, reale e non reale si confondono, lasciando chi guarda in uno stato di curiosa confusione". (motivazioni del Premio come Miglior Cortomentraggio Italiano, Hacker Porn IFF, Roma 2018)
