Notes from "Illuminations - The films of Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi

Mario Giacomelli: Contacts, 1993, 35mm, black and white, 13'
Animali Criminali, 1994, 16mm, colour, silent, 7'
Lo Specchio di Diana (The Looking Glass of Diana), 1996, video, colour, soundtrack by Keith Ulrich, 31'

History and memory
Body and embodiment
Death and cinema

Materiality of film (textures, speed, temporal disturbances, colour) that leads to the imaginary, experienced as a haunting.
Photographers as explorers
Cinematographic pornography
Symbology of fascism - invisible hand puts one creature against another (Animali Criminali)
The image with the grammar of cinema
Secrets on top of secrets on top of secrets
Cinematic archaeology
Ships of the desert = camera
Mussolini : Everyone wants to touch his hands but he's wearing gloves (forms of behaviour)
Sensory cinematography - the 'touch' (contact, missing contact)
