WELCOME PALERMO a film by Masbedo
In 2018 artistic duo Masbedo produced Videomobile for Manifesta 12, Palermo. They transformed an old van into “video wagon”, a mobile laboratory. This curious vehicle, equipped with a stage for performances and interviews, became a multi-channel interactive installation at the biennial. Welcome Palermo, dedicated to the relationship between that city and the cinema, covers the project’s evolution. Interviews with known and unknown personalities and archival material alternate with performances by writers, DJs and Palermo citizens who recite questions on sexuality asked by Pier Paolo Pasolini in his film Comizi d’amore.
Original soundtrack by Davide Tomat and G.U.P. Alcaro.
