SOLON

Clarissa Campolina

Brazil / 2016 / 16mm DCP/ Color/ 16min

Solon is a tale about the emergence or re-emergence of the world, brought from the encounter of a devastated landscape and a mysterious creature. Solon inhabits this extremely arid and infertile space. Slowly, it begins a task of putting out the fire that dominates the environment and to nourish the earth. Water spurting from its body make the fire disappear, while colored smoke invade the space. The landscape changes and the creature as well. The world is born. A woman is born.
