This is a sequence of 3 surreal short films that will be merged into a feature lenght work. Its narration is a mystical ritual in cinematic form in which Davide Di Saro performs as main actor merging his archetypical symbols of existential exploration with cultures accumulated during his spiritual quests around the world.
The whole cinematic journey begins in a small historical town in the 19th century, over the peak of Australian colonial era, in which he performs as a recently arrived European immigrant. Davide eventually embarks into a visionary response to his ancestral search guiding his ego through main symbolic encounters with human and animal connotations, based on Australian Aboriginals' story telling.

This work was created as consequence of a vision quest within a residency in Australian Aboriginal cultural territories in Arnhem Land and utilizes the legendary Dream-Time as vehicle for annihilation of personal profound ego which is ultimately represented through an ancient Tibetan Chöd pray.
The short films are produced outside the usual forms of narration, using a ritualistic manipulation of local events and scenarios based on the concept of random hunting and gathering.
