“Losing Truth is an original audiovisual work that constantly oscillates between reality and illusion. The impossibility of finding ourselves pushes us into a personal search path whose goal often ends up being questioned by what is strictly “true and rational”. Nonetheless, the key to the issue is always something deep, coming from the inside. Between memories and evocation of a world that no longer exists or has never existed, losing truth (meant as awareness of the human limits that prevent us from going beyond) seems the only way to get out of an overwhelming feeling of inadequacy and misunderstanding.”
