The Ruins of Byzantium

I resti di Bisanzio

Italy, 2013


A meaningless trip, an urgency of emptiness – like Byzantine iconoclastic fury – (in the history and geography of the characters), a wandering and a cyclical return to scenes and images as the pieces get lost among Otranto’s trampled mosaic tiles.
