A fresh breath
This year we chose a symbolic image, a held breath, an unmasked mouth, a desired immersion. The image of the 21st edition of Un Festival C’est Trop Court! narrated by Michele Ciulla, co-artist of this visual with the photographer Emanuele Faccio Gofas :
Moments of waiting, which have become years, which have become lives. A suspension full of apprehension, anguish, hopes and expectations along which we seemed doomed to hold our breath towards a vital impulse that would have led us to a newfound confidence. A new dimension, able to bring us back to what we were, a dreamlike image, the safety of the maternal womb, our coming into the world, waiting for our first breath”.
