Fictio Legis

Film DCP – color – 5.1 sound – 12 min – 2018

Fictio Legis is a fiction film poetically tracing a genealogy of debt in Europe from Medieval first loans. The film unravels as a critical essay, a witness of two eras economical political problems that our contemporary times seem to gather. As a political fable, Fictio Legis follows the destiny of a convoy crossing Germany and connecting on its way European economic narratives. Wandering people drift from Frankfurt’s ECB to rural areas where appear mysteriously the hundred towers of the medieval city of Bologna.
