The new short documentary film by Seppo Renvall is a surrealistic portrayal of Naples as a state of mind in which the present day and antiquity are intertwined. The film is a visual journey into Naples, its people and life in the alleyways of the city. The film mixes abstract visual narrative and acted scenes that turn into plot structures illuminating the everyday life of Naples in a dreamlike way.
Seppo Renvall is a pioneer in Finnish experimental film. He works mainly with film and video, but hid artistic output also includes photography, installations and happenings. His films are characterised by an abstract imagery in black and white and a non-narrative structure that often focuses on the apparently commonplace and everyday. Renvall collaborates with musicians, DJs and audio specialists. His works and performances have been seen in the most prestigious arenas of alternative film and visual arts from Anthology Film Ar-chive in New York to the biennials of Venice and Sao Paulo.
