From Lingotto to Paradise

In spite of the fact that the title could cross-refer to Petri’s movie “The working class goes to paradise”, the video is not about social matters. Although, the anguish produced by Torino’s underground shows us, through a claustrophobic and dead-end journey, the impossible escape and the unsolvable anxiety given by a reality, ours, condemned to a self-punished decadence. The video is a POV shot and narrates an underground ride.

Torino underground trains have a peculiarity, that of not having a driver, so the passenger has a free view and can face such underground journey in first person, which recalls the well-known atmospheres of the 1970s’ science fiction movies.
