Turbomondi (Melodia) is a hypnotic experience within worlds that interrogate the communicative power of the word, its persuasiveness and the mechanisms it implements in dictating the bonds of sociality. A mysterious story, a film made of static and motionless frames, with no tracking shots or other machine movements. The installed video is intended like a large melted image. The edition of short film is accompanied by an experimental text by Damiano Gullì (Public Program Head Curator - Triennale Milan).
