Sic Transit

Manuel Saiz

2009, 04:40 minutes, colour, English, German, Italian


Sic Transit is a short film in which several people run towards the camera to deliver sequentially some phrases, in a high moment of panting and emotional intensity. The text is only complete by the recite of all the participants and then it forms a poetical recount of the encounter of the artists with the load of centuries of Art and Culture. The video has been shot at the riverside in Rome, with the collaboration of foreign artists living in the city.
