Swan Song, S16mm film and DVcam transferred to digital beta, stereo sound, 7:44, 2004.
A poetic depiction of Sicilian folklore traditions, Swan Song is a farewell to a time that no longer exists. Rinaldo, a traditional Sicilian marionette plays out his epic duel against fall into oblivion. A folk song, performed by an older generation, serves as the backbone of the piece. The song arouses memories, personal and local experiences mirror inevitably global phenomena.
