Director Statement

Enjoy the new contemporary Italian Cinema: La Scultura, one of the most award-winning independent Italian feature film!
The Sculpture is set in Italy in the contemporary world. The film was shot in order to be understood by all the public, while remaining within the
scope of an authorial and visual impact direction. The film faces the issue of “Art’s prostitution” without any sweetened filter: therefore the decision
to shoot uncensored nude scenes and sex. The direction tends towards neatness, minimalism and essentiality, although being ever refined/polished.
The very unsaturated and clear photography is inspired by the sculptures of ancient Greece that were not purely white, but (battered) coarse. The
stylistic and narrative choices converge in the expression of the main, single concept:
Art that prostitutes itself, dies!
