"Black Days, White Nights" is an anthem to beauty, fashion and arts, but most of all to contrast. It symbolizes lightness and darkness, hope and despair, life and death. Light only has a meaning in relation to darkness. Hope only exists when despair precedes. Death gives meaning to our lives. We only exist in terms of these conflicts, in the very moment when black and white clash.
The city of Rome, headquarters of the Vatican and the Catholic Church, is definitely the most suggestive scenery for challenging contrasts. It is witness of contradictions of thousands of years, literally it's where heaven and hell collapse and rise at the same moment. The film "Black Days, White Nights" wants to awake awareness of the beauty of contrasts that surrounds us every day, and every night. ( © Carina Wachsmann)
