Lost Memories: Mare Nostrum

Project Info

Project Description

Lost Memories aims to produce a poetic and emotional immersive experience focusing the lost of migrants in the Mediterranean Sea while they attempt to reach the European shores. The lost objects loaded of memories are a metaphor of the lost lives. At the beginning, the viewer is experiencing a diving journey starting with an idyllic marine scene surrounded by small silver fish swimming around. Suddenly a strange noise comes from above, a sort of engine is getting close, trudging through the waves. It’s getting dark, looking above we see a keel’s shape. The engine stops, human voices now are screaming.
