Film Description:

A moment does not exist in time, it is an artificial fraction extrapolated from a continuum. Art aims to grasp those moments and therefore, like in the creation of a sculpture, it reminds us that there was life and therefore it depicts as well, death. Dĭēs is a film that combines dance, music and sculpture in the Tempietto del Bramante, a temple that constitutes a masterpiece of the Renaissance in Rome. Entering a temple is to cross a threshold that symbolises the passage from the known to the unknown, from the light of consciousness to the darkness of the unconscious, a timeless dimension in which the dynamic creative forces of the individual reside.
