La nostalgia della condizione sconosciuta
a film by Andrea Grasselli
production 5e6 film with OM video

DOCUMENTARY | 73′ | COLOR | DCP | 2020


Inspired by the essay The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life by sociologist Erving Goffman, the documentary explores the threshold between social and dramaturgical roles. The need to represent what we are missing, what we cannot experience, and the impossibility of stopping this need is examined through the struggle of Ettore, singer-songwriter and protagonist of the documentary.



What happens when the protagonist of a documentary plays the part of himself, exploring ambiguous concepts of reality? Ettore drags us into a claustrophobic game of existential mirrors, questioning the boundaries between reality and staging.
