6’48 • 2009 • vo sans dialogue • Italie • animation

The strange story of a man, a dog and a crow lost in a snowscape.
A story about survivors.

mortale is the second chapter of a series of films made in collaboration with the english musician Mick Harris, who underlines the hurtful rythm of the walking along the mortal river.
In this second chapter there is also something sick in the human being.
A sentimental relationship with the "Beast", where life and death are blended in an unspeakable dreadful "unicum".
The art/cinema by Paolo Bonfiglio is both the horror outside his genre and the enchantement, dualism deep inside the human heart.
