The Golden Egg White

The Golden Egg White
Samira Guadagnuolo, Tiziano Doria
I, 2023, b-w, 65’
Italian o.v.

A white hen, animal guide, takes us through a suspended and magical Mediterranean landscape. The film was made in complete autarky. Subject, production and 16mm processing were carried out by Warshadfilm – Tiziano Doria, Samira Guadagnuolo – in their Milanese laboratory.

A lady decides late in life to hatch an egg, some men suspend their daily work enraptured by sleep and the dreams that come from it, someone traces gestures that transform the flow of things. The iconography of Italian painting is full of sleepers: men with sleepy consciences or people capable of dreaming and having visions that go beyond the natural order? A white hen, animal guide, takes us through a suspended and magical Mediterranean landscape. In competition at the latest Filmmaker Film Festival.

“The film was made in complete autarky. Subject, production and 16mm processing (shooting, development of the negative, printing and editing) were carried out by Warshadfilm – Tiziano Doria, Samira Guadagnuolo – in their Milanese laboratory with the intention of regaining possession of the entire film production process. The form and language of the film bear the marks of this choice and find – to the minimum degree of tools and technical possibilities – a conceptual and poetic correspondence.” (production notes)
