PUNTO appropriates a scene from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film Accattone (1961) where the protagonist stares into the camera lens and then unexpectedly spits in the direction of the viewer. This transgressive act is slowed down into single-frames that are slowly dissolved into each other offering a visceral and haptic experience of the photographic image.
PUNTO is part of the PASOLINI PROJECT - a project inspired by Italian filmmaker and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini.
