Cross Broadway, 5'27'', 2009
The artist as an accidental tourist struggling with an unprecedented sweep around the soul of Manhattan. The heart of the metropolis is taken in a single frame, without interruptions, the structure of the film is like the opening credits of a movie, that is about to begin, the 42nd street as iconic status landscaping with saturated blunders, neon is crossed by anonymous human figures. Passers-by, transiting the crossroads, overlap each other and become "famous" for the short time of their passage, then vanished and replaced by other ephemeral "stars". It 's the genius loci of this artificial and abstract no place, to choose and determine, during the fleeting transit, the real stars of the show as part of Cross Broadway.
