Video Art: The World is a Luna Park

‘Il Mondo è un Luna Park’, created by Ana Corrie, is a profound short documentary which delves into the mysteries of human existence, the complex nature of the human psyche, what it means to be human inhabiting a labyrinth like world – a place ‘you can go inside but you can’t get out,’ and much more. The film features Alfredo Balestri – a former History, Philosophy and Italian literature teacher – and his stream of consciousness dialogues touching on the work of various philosophers and psychologists.  From Aristotle to Freud to Nietzsche, Balestri captivatingly contemplates the source and depth of life on earth.
