ma – mo (Italian filmmaker Maurizio Morucci) and screenwriter and Nicola Molino unveil the impressive short film OBSCURE INTERIORS OF A HUMAN BEING ..The story is a hurtling pace toward a climax of chilling cynicism. The short-film’s sinister loopy tone explore the things we tell ourselves to make our lives worth living. It’s a story about the anxieties of identity in the new millennium.
Morucci explains: “The visual flair I’ve chosen for telling this story, it’s a puzzle of moving images with a “Bauhaus” twist that renders it an uncanny quality that I consider faithful to the creepiness of the report.
DOPPELGÄNGER: It’s a ghostly copy or even real (double) of a living person. The term doppelgänger is borrowed from German and refers more commonly the so-called evil twin. In an age where people want to believe they’re special and unique the realization that we’re just like everyone else might be the most destructive of all. In the end this might be the most potent implication of the doppelganger motif.The protagonists’s pathological profile:
MAE: suffers from narcissistic personality disorder. Her life is at the stage where she is trying to re-configure her identity, transforming her innermost self. She experiences this transformation as persecutory. In short, she’s a woman on the edge, at risk of losing control of herself.
JAY: is a cynical-hedonist. Her character is dominant, quasi-masculine. She has made a banner of her existential failure, in the name of which she is convinced enough to
proselytize. She conceives of friendship as a battleground.In an age where people want to believe they’re special and unique the realization that we’re just like everyone else might be the most destructive of all. In the end this might be the most potent implication of the DOPPELGÄNGER motif.
