The traces which Honetschläger follows on his journey of discovery across Sicily and his travels through Palermo do not end at vistas providing views of daily life or the islands history or even destinations which could be labeled significant. Our traveler is enchanted by the ambivalent flair of places where history is refracted in the looking-glass of myths: myths which have become part of the citys history, which live on in tales or keep the magic alive in movie characters. More than just the portrait of an island and its history, Il mare e la torta represents an entire cosmos of atmospheres that Honetschläger captures as a breathtaking ensemble of sounds and images, reproducing them in associative montages of motifs.
