Roman Walls

Muri romani

Directed by Jon Jost
Italy, 2000
Documentary, Avant-Garde


Muri Romani is a kind of documentary in a somewhat radical form. In appearance it is utter simplicity: the image of a patch of wall in Rome, today. As one watches the wall seems to change, invisibly, without technical means. The sound is a collage of street sounds: the daily sounds of central Rome.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
