Civitas

In sequences filmed from a near-zenith point of view, nocturnal situations are shown where passers-by and vehicles flow harmoniously and rhythmically. The frames are configured with high tonal contrast and build as photographs but in movement. That’s where „Civitas“ appears: a state of emptiness, silence, and introspection of individuals trying to inhabit the big capitalist cities
