imnotrussian# (a film about your life)
imnotrussian# has been with me for so long that it has become some sort of a “road movie”, a (film about your life).
When I started working on it I really needed to understand my own biography and my relation with effort and failure. After four years, I got bored to think about that and I felt ashamed for being lucky enough to have the chance to even think about my own failure when other people live such a miserable, horrible and painful life that can’t even begin to feel their own failure.
Little by little, imnotrussian# has become an aesthetic reflection about the concepts of State and God, two superior entities that orbit above all of us. If i have to be honest, I don’t understand these two concepts. I know we fight in order to reach them and I know that State and that God (if they were ever something more than a concept) abandoned us in this foolish fight that doesn’t belong to us. I wonder why I (why we) keep playing that game, and a collective suicide is not my answer to this question. So I wonder if it’s more radical to answer with beauty, with an attempt to preserve the perfection we were born with.
