HYBRISTES

La parola greca “hybristes” significa colui che ha commesso un atto di “hybris”, cioè ha sfidato gli déi (o socialmente i “poteri forti”) perché sicuro delle proprie capacità. Nella tragedia, l'hybris può ripercuotersi non solo sul “colpevole” originario ma anche sui suoi discendenti innescando così una situazione che si prolunga nel tempo. La locuzione “cogito ergo sum” di Cartesio afferma “penso dunque sono” dando una certezza del proprio essere ed è per questo che ho voluto fondere questi due stati filosofici-sociali per dare rilevanza al contrasto tra di essi.
Nel cortometraggio ho cercato di unire un malessere sociale che fa rinchiudere in se stessi chi non si sente accettato dalla società con delle scoperte tangibili riscontrate da me in alcuni dipinti di Raffaello Sanzio. Un piccolo viaggio tra situazioni oniriche e reali che cerca di esser costituito a strati sempre più profondi, esattamente come il nostro “essere” e come le opere d'arte prese in esame.

Director Statement

The greek word “hybristes” means one who had committed “hybris”, that is to challenge the gods (or socially the “power”) because he's certain of his ability. In the tragedy, hybris can have repercussions not only on the original culprit but even on his descendants, triggering a situation that goes on in time. The Cartesio's locution “Cogito ergo sum” states “I think, so I be” giving a certainty of our self, and for this I fuse this two philosophical-social states, to give importance on the contrast between them.
In the short film I try to combine a social uneasiness, that locked up a person in his self because he's not accepted by the society, with the tangible discoveries I found in some paintings of Raffaello Sanzio. A small journey between dreamlike and real situations that try to be built in deeper and deeper layers, just like our self and the works examined.
