Audiovisual landscapes of fear and anxiety
The project expresses some of the main concerns of media effects. More precisely, audiences exposition to broadcast violence practices such as terrorism, and psychological terror. I believe that keeping the fear alive is one of the main media effects produced in the last years by the American televisions, and political propaganda. My vision is quite critical, and I developed ambiguous sequences of psychological violence exposition and experiences, exploring peaks of noise and silence (visual and auditory noise), with edit techniques attached to contemporary terror movies. The main character - the victim - is experiencing fear, anxiety and paranoia from an unknown enemy. In fact, there is no enemy, just a repressed fear by broadcasted media. These fragments
collide in the end, with a black screen. This is the moment so people can really think and reflect about the narrative and the story. It is a moment so people can unite the puzzle pieces and memory flashbacks with some of the elements developed by the narrative (places, actions, hours, etc). The USASA National anthem gathers all this elements in a unique vision and context, with some irony attached, enforced by the black screen.
