1st variation of the 3V video triptych, a project inspired by the documentary film The five obstructions by Lars Von Trier and Jørgen Leth.

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 adaptation about modern society, sex, church and social class.

The 3V triptych is composed by : 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 as Lars Von Trier did in his film.

OBSTRUCTIONS by Silvano Bacciardi:
– only photo sequences
– move the shoot
– chromatic elaboration
