Punto de Vista 2022 Winners
Direction: Paolo Gioli
Diving is the aquatic version of air floating. The great Italian experimental filmmaker presents us with one of his brief film essays on the bodies that enter the water after a fleeting flight without knowing what awaits them in the depths. A fixed photo combined with waves of water, a mirror effect, solarised and overlapping jumps, everything is valid in the Gioli collage. If diving and flying are synonyms, drowning can be a fatal fall. However, nothing denies the beauty of a winged body suspended in the air like a dagger that threatens the water.
