RietveldTV by Bernardo Zanotta: THE SKIN OF STRANGERS

In Portuguese, one usually says, "à flor da pele" to describe a feeling which transpires from inside to outside, flowering from one's skin. This feeling, known to most people, is a force that betrays us, exposes us. Departing from this premise, Bernardo Zanotta's video essay for RietveldTV remixes his personal video archive with excerpts of films and YouTube videos. Using this material to reflect on family ties, youth, and coming-of-age, the maker oscillates between description and digression, creating an ever-changing patchwork of thoughts and memories.

RietveldTV by Bernardo Zanotta was broadcasted on AT5 Saturday 30th of July and Sunday 31st of July at 22.40h.
