WhimSeaCall - Nocturnal Sea

WhimSeaCall or a whimsical call from the sea, a reinvigorating allegorical swim in the alchemical archetype of the Red Sea otherwise hinting at the blackest dead sea of the unconscious performed on a black sun shore of an Italian coastline with harbour landscape in the background reminding the relation of the psyche to its environment. On that liminality, the mare magnum is the canopy of the secreto secretorum once revealed to the great Alexander Magnum and tonight to a woman.

Director Biography - Sara Ferro

Graduation: MA in Sociology of Media
(Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca)

Vision: Both in making award-winning feature documentary films and experimental projects/video art she tackles the austerity of the Traditional Studies - e.g. how the esoteric "arts" and "sciences" call their concerns with all the related paraphernalia and conceptual apparatuses -, making them light like vibrating swooshes.

Focus: Although academically a social scientist, she has become more and more attracted to cinematics far away from reality and to perennial philosophy up to the point that she bohemianlly lives only for the sake of those arts.
