Eventide
is the result of a long depuration of ideas, experiences and artistic references. The intention was to make a film in which the story is diluted in water movements, slow and steady, coming and going between the landscape of the beach and the very heart of the characters represented by the inner of the house. The main inspiration is undoubtedly “The Mirror” of Andrei Tarkovski. All these subtle marks that the members of a family leave in each other through the ages, memories, fears, silences, resentment, perplexities are what the film is about .

The choices for the poetic language and the general almost abstract aesthetic are due to the universe of the arts and theater in authors like Beckett and Bob Wilson, but also to abstract painting and still contemporary photography, which brought form, emotion and meaning to the play of colors that animates the scenes. Eventide is, above all, a poetic look on being, an attempt to dive in the deep human feelings and in the extreme transience of our experiences, exploring the potentials that the languages of cinema and the arts has to offer as a whole, working in the same conceptual direction.
