3rd variation of the 3V video triptych, a project inspired by the documentary film The five obstructions by Lars Von Trier and Jørgen Leth. 
 
OBSTRUCTIONS by Daniele Barbieri:
- 3 subliminal messages per 10 times
- split the monitor (not less than two)
- no still frames
 
This video is a free interpretation of the silent surrealist short film Un chien andalou (1929) by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí. 
My personal aim was to take the symbols, the social subjects and the surrealistic ideas of Un chien andalou and gave them a new contemporary vision about modern society, sex, church and social class.
 
The 3V triptych is composed of three videos: A splinter in the eye (a video made with photos), The choice (an animation) and Secrets (a live action video). 
All three videos got rules and obstructions from different professionals as it did in the Lars Von Trier's film.
