Photographing New York
by Cesare Bedogné
(Experimental, Italy, 2021, 9', NB, OV)
The film was inspired by the poem written by Cesare Bedogné after a trip to New York in 2004. Suddenly it came back to him in 2018, during his stay in Portugal, where he started to dream about America on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. He made a series of photos inspired by shots of New York that he had taken 15 years earlier. The film is constructed with images taken at these distinct periods of his life, interweaving different visual languages in what turns out to be more a portrait of an inner state than a documentary film.
