Are memories, desires, dreams and fantasies the ingredients with which one builds their own story and self identity? This is the question from which the video “12september2001” was conceived. The passing images live in the mind of the narrator. His inner voice addresses two young women whom he sees in a house – imagined to be abandoned and destroyed – which they used to spend their summers together. He recalls memories and dreams, shares his nostalgia, and confesses his still vivid fantasies about them.
These images are a mix between the narrator’s memories, his fantasies and emotions, and his personal experience of historical events, all of which are constitutive elements of his identity.
