About Victorie

The film “Victorie” is a mirror image of Dante Alighieri's “Divina Commedia” projected into the 20th century art-scene. It starts with the funeral of the Italian book-publisher Feltrinelli and ends in a bliss of light under the Devil-bridge in Cividale/Cedad.

The 1st part of the film features a tourist walking through a 1st WW monument in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy.

The 2nd part is a near-to-silent picture from the sky of Tokyo after the firebombing air raids during World War II.

In the 3rd part, the tourist is travelling through a landscape of political constraints and interventions that suffocate and imprison her. She has become immune to human diseases. She sees the viruses, all of them death threatening, but they cannot harm her anymore.

This tourist-walk-through the 20th century, started with utopian future visions and ended in worship of homemade aesthetics.
