CINZIA SARTO STATEMENT:
I was always interested in counterculture, mostly on those individuals that have been able to find some personal freedom within their life, as a consequence I resent all that promotes the role of individuals as consumers of life. This has made me a stranger in my own country and a traveller for years. Video is the tool I use to unravel my own expectation while walking.
Cinzia’s Q & A at a live AXW screening on 10/ 5/ 2016 is available on this site for free under live festivals.
