Guerra e pace

War and Peace

WAR AND PEACE tells the story of the relationship between cinema and war, one that has lasted for over a century. From the sequences filmed by the pioneers of cinema to today’s videos shot on smartphones the step appears very short and the relationship between the movies and war a very strong one. WAR AND PEACE is a reflection on images and, as in a long novel divided into four chapters (remote past, recent past, present and future), tries to put all the pieces of the fragmented visual memory from the early years of the 20th century until today back together.
