The One Who Walks
(GER/ITA 2014, 9’30’’, French /Italian/Spanish)
Named after the central female figure in Carlo Lizzani’s contribution to the neo-realistic anthology film “L᾽amore in città” from 1953. An aging, impoverished prostitute is the focal point for questioning one’s own role as an individual, a self-reliant child in a working-class family, a woman, a daughter or an artist. An associative montage of self-filmed material, found footage and fragile sculptural constructions.
