Synopsis/Description
Not With Standing 5′ BnW AudioVisualArt – 2009 Concept, Music and Editing Sonia Laura Armaniaco Real footage, found footage, dislocated footage for the dynamics and location of the BnW “story”, which is nowhere and its contrary, where ongoing emotions and mainly their immateriality (paradoxically with weight) trace some kind of “time” and where the ghostly-ethereal element becomes the main one as the key witness. mashup: William Shakespeare’s “Sonnet47″, Mamoru Oshii’s “Ghost in the Shell”, Michel Foucault’s “Utopian Body”
