SALVI QUANDO SCENDE LA NOTTE
De Thomas Guillot, film 2016, 20min
SALVI QUANDO SCENDE LA NOTTE is conceived as a reprise of The Leopard — the Tomasi di Lampedusa novel — which compares the historical and contemporary situation of the island of Lampedusa with this novel about the end of a world – that of the Sicilian aristocracy, who are not so far from out dusty old Europe today. The play of transpositions and displacements is constantly redistributing the themes and putting them in new perspectives as they become invested and contaminated by the situation of the island, literally trying to build a bridge between the fable of The Leopard and the Sicilian island.
