Introduced by Lydia Mancinelli
An imaginary autobiography, this film won the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and triggered a public outcry.  It is a short-circuit of images, words and music that denies all form of communication:  "I don't want my films to communicate anything at all...  I believe the time has now come... to revive a word that's cast into damnation these days: sentiment."
