CARLO'S VISION is based on an episode in the unfinished novel Petrolio by Pier Paolo Pasolini. It is a mixture of observational documentary and fiction – in which Carlo is pulled along Rome’s Via Torpignattara on a director’s dolly, observing the long march of a young man, “The Shit“ and his fiancée Cinzia. He can hear the interior monologues of two of the gods, the prophetic figures provide an interpretation of what Carlo is witnessing. The vision experienced by Carlo is differentiated from reality by the use of colour. The magical friction of the film lies in the borders where simultaneous realities meet. The mythological style procession is dropped right down into a very ordinary day in the surburbs, whose population observes, participates and claims its existence out loud.

Rosalind Nashashibi was born in 1973 in London, where she still lives and works today.
