The Parents' Room

Diego Marcon
Italy, United Kingdom 2021
11 min
English OV

Diego Marcon’s work has often marshalled a grand cinema effect (35mm cinematography, sumptuous sets, operatic performance poses) for the sake of a deconstructive practice closer to installation art. THE PARENTS’ ROOM is a condensed musical displaying many affinities with Carax’s ANNETTE: tragic events in a family setting, weirdly lulling song recitals, and above all an overall aura of the uncanny. Where do the various components of human bodies, angelic voices, prosthetic make-up, and CGI digital effects begin and end? Blackly funny and unsettling, it’s a jewel of discombobulated cinema. (Adrian Martin)

In the presence of Diego Marcon and Camilla Romeo (producer).
This film will be shown as part of the screening SHORT FILM PROGRAMME 7: A CERTAIN INTIMACY.
