Synopsis

Someone goes to a city and finds a classic sculpture next to a skyscraper. They are in front of two constructions separated by 1000 years. And nothing happens. The constant accumulation of History means that, little by little, the past only matters anecdotally and the present holds all the interest. Yet the present is subtle and fragile and it would appear that no historical event is now as significant as it should be. How many people have visited the Parthenon? How many people have set foot in the Taj Mahal? How many people have seen the snakes on Medusa’s head? How many people have heard anything, ever, about Adam and Eve? A lot. According to the century, each one of us has told themselves their own story in order to understand better and explain to themselves why they are where they are. But the Sky, which will never disappear and survives all of us, observes surprisedly, from above, our saturation by models and references. And, still believing in choosing the best, the same stories are repeated time and time again. Whether riding a horse in a white tunic or in a tracksuit travelling with RyanAir. And the Sky laughs, because, in some way, this is the tragic history of people.
