What is light? Or rather: what lies inside light? Time? Our history? That of our cities of origin, so unbearable and yet so magnetic? Or is language hidden within light, a stream of words in flight that try to shed light onto things, even the mystery of a human life? The only certainty is that for Giorgio Vasta and Ramak Fazel, light is an obsession that fuels a wide-eyed adventure through space and time. In this vortex of images, with his gaze, Fazel invents a suspended Palermo, a city made up of shadows where, right in the middle of the undergrowth, we might come across a dinosaur. A wildly subjective portrait of a Palermo, a reckoning with the past, where in the rare beauty of Vasta’s precise language, a paradoxical autobiography is put together, on the traces of an archaeology of memories and visions: the flight dissolves into a very sharp, unreal and daunting image, in which we can make out the semblance of what each of us refers to as longing.
