Exsemabfii: Festa #1
16mm, black and white, 27 min
"This film is essentially an audio-visual experience. The basic footage was shot on Mulberry Street in the heart of New York's "Little Italy" neighborhood during the annual street festival (festa in Italian) in honor of San Gennaro. Special camera and laboratory techniques are used to express a trip through the maze of people, food and gambling booths. Starting with a seeming reality, the pomp and flash of the street band modulates to the frenzy and artificiality of the so-called "charitable benefit" through the use of prisms, blurring with the camera and a recurring drift from the positive image through a solarized transition into a negative and back by experimetal processing.

Transformation on a Soho Street
16mm, black and white, 20 min
Genre: Documentary, Experimental
Transformations on a Soho Street is an attempt at extending the documentary film away from traditional institutional mentality and into a candid, intimate experience and commentary of the event. While one of the basic precepts of still photo-journalism is to let the subject dictate or inspire, the treatment and result, most documentary films still originate from a pre-determined structure and script which is occasionally re-adapted during the filming.
