Virtual Therapy

Neo, the hero from the movie THE MATRIX, lies in the foreground, moving restlessly sometimes, as if he were having a bad dream. Behind him, a "projected" woman reports - with a foreign accent - on the content of the same film. From time to time, images of Neo's or Trinity's face fall through the screen, like sudden memories. A kind of therapeutical situation is constructed, in which one may reflect about what is real and what is imagination, and about the different realities of the conscious and the unconscious. 2006, video DV PAL, colour, 9' 54", stereo.
