cinema paradiso

Venice, August 2010

As opposed to former experiences of the Morion’s neighbors the cinema paradiso was not loud, quite the contrary it showed silent movies. We started with a small screen in the back alley. As the people got to know this new attraction and grew in numbers we built larger and larger screens. In the end we used a clothes line stretched across the street were we put two bed sheets.

Our resume: It is easy to create a silent movie cinema in public space as long as you figure out how to unscrew the bulbs of the street lights.
