Mutilated Canova • presentation
Surrealistic images of sculptures that are amputated, disemboweled, blown to pieces. These recently discovered photographic plates were made in 1918, subsequent to the shelling of the Canova plaster collection in Possagno, in order to help reconstruct the plaster sculptures. The film is structured around the disturbing strangeness and metaphorical force of these photographs. It also makes use of interviews and film archives to evoke the terrible war that took place in northern Italy in 1917. The film shows how the passion and tenacity of a few can keep time from erasing traces of the past.
