Vedo rosso (I See Red)

Edition 2021
12' - 2020
Director: Adrian Paci
Vedo rosso is a polyphonic composition for color and voice; weaving together three threads of isolation, coercion, and negation, both spatial and internal, it examines limitations—physical, psychological, individual, and collective—and the longing to overcome them.

The screen is filled with a pulsating red that, for just a few moments, is interrupted by the appearance of an eye. The almost paradoxical choice to address the drama of domestic violence through the negation of images suggests the “impossibility” of telling this story. The eyes that fleetingly appear come from video portraits of Syrian refugee women that Paci filmed in Beirut in 2018. An original text written and performed by playwright and actress Daria Deflorian provides the narrative structure. Vedo rosso is a polyphonic composition for color and voice; weaving together three threads of isolation, coercion, and negation, both spatial and internal, it examines limitations—physical, psychological, individual, and collective—and the longing to overcome them. (Leonardo Bigazzi)
