Stills of Peace for Children – “Like a magic”

Short film by Paolo Dell’Elce

On display from 7 July to 2 September at the Archaeological Museum of Atri

An analogical photography laboratory in the primary school “Vittorio Bachelet” of Orsogna (classes 4 ° A – 4 ° B), with an important multi-ethnic reality that expresses itself in a climate of happy cultural integration, gave me the opportunity to realize a short film that, through the story of the various experiences that have occurred, wants to be my personal homage to the lost time of my childhood, as of every generation, in which we lived perhaps more fully, without differences and prejudices.These children looked at each other differently, for the first time, through the lens of an old SLR camera and they got to know each other a little bit more by experiencing the time of the vision, which is not the hasty look they are accustoming us to. new means of acquiring images, but it is the recollecting gaze of a human being that captures the beauty reflected in the eyes of another human being.
