Wounded was the dressing (not the arm)
With this short movie the creators wanted to relate temporality and melancholy and they chose a dreamy shape to depict this relationship. Nostalgia is generally aimed to the past but that’s not its only dimension. Present’s nostalgia and future’s nostalgia are oxymoronic realities. Some people live in a costant condition of ‘fading immediate’, they cling with all their strenght to a poignant present.
Unwind this blindfold, unwind, unwind.
White, white, less white. A little red, red, red, more red.
(Is the sore here?).
Unwind, unwind, less red, less red, less red.
White, white, whiter, whiter and blindfold’s off.
Wounded was the dressing. Not the arm.
So, could this be melancholy and nothing else?
