Some people looking at a spot of color don’t see anything. Then there are those who see a whole world, a story. It is from a small brushstroke of paint that BAVURE, the latest short film by Donato Sansone, starts.
Born in 1974, Donato Sansone studied first at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples and then at the Centro Sperimentale di Animazione in Turin. During his career, he directed several short films including “Love Cube“, “Topo glassato al cioccolato, “Portrait“, “Journal animé” and “Robhot“, with which he collected several nominations and victories at international festivals. Donato Sansone’s creativity does not end with the world of cinema, but goes as far as the world of music, curating several video clips for artists such as Subsonica, Verdena, and Afethours.
As we said, his last short film is entitled BAVURE and it is a metaphor of life, of the creation of the world, but also of artistic creation. Everything starts with tempera, a little red and a little white and the hand of a skilled artist, to give life to a body, a skeleton, a man and then a woman, a baby and the whole universe.
BAVURE, which attracts and repulses us at the same time, has carved out a place for itself in the list of candidates for the César Prize and for this very reason the production company Autour de Minuit has published the entire short film on its YouTube channel, where it will remain visible until the end of January.
