Lines is entering into an imaginary space in which everything "is the truth and nothing but the truth", but at the same time "it is all lies". It is a journey in which there are no clear limits, time and space are all at once - there is no past, no present, no future, no here, no there. It is a journey in which our need to organize and understand things is left without explanatory cues. We are then free to interpret anything and anyone just as we want; perhaps as we do in "real" life.
“Lines” is a short-film production. There are plenty of technical challenges presented by the film and its concept: presentation of the unpresentable, erasure of boundary between past and present, nostalgia, parody, voyeurism, sexual ambiguity and the characteristics of an independent short film: anti-theatrical, thought provoking and emphasis on the structure of individuals shots.
