L'aldIlå / The Afterlife
"Nell'aldilà si rivivono tutte le esperienze di una vita. Tuttavia, in questo mondo, gli episodi sono rimescolati secondo un nuovo ordine e tutti i momenti simili sono raccolti assieme."
This film was created for a festival tour in Italy to promote the non-profit organization Nos Archives, the first unpublished worldwide archive of amateur videos and images. Nos Archives mission is to collect, restore and archive forgotten film before it is lost forever. They currently have restored and digitized more than 13 thousand films, from 1922 to 1984.
The film itself was inspired by the writings of David Eagleman. The film opens with a passage from his book, Sum: Tales From The Afterlife– In the afterlife you relive all you experiences, but this time with the events reshuffled into a new order: all the moments that share a quality are grouped together. The film combines contemporary footage with restored 8mm and 16mm amateur videos from the 1920s-1960s, giving life to a collective memory and human history.
