CROSSING (2009)
 

DVD PAL, b&w with sound, 2'51" min, 4:3, 2009

 

Crossing is about mirroring reflections, which implicate alikeness but not necessarily equality. The plot is situated in a street corner paved like a chess board. People walk in, join each other and separate. There is a moment of crossing in which they double in perfect harmony. But, nevertheless, their thoughts remain individually different. The voice speaks about "the going." Globalization might mean enforcement of connections, enlargement of horizons, but not for the price of losing one’s identity.
