The Cambodian Room: Situations with Antoine D'Agata

The Cambodian Room: Situations with Antoine D'Agata Cover

Format:

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Antoine D'Agata, Magnum photographer since 2004, is in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where his artistic trail seems to reach an utmost point. After devoting himself to depicting desolated landscapes and borderline realities, D'Agata focuses his art on his intimate human relations. His latest work focuses on body and flesh, in a narrow room.

This film catches the hidden part of his art making; his choice of living on the edge and experiencing sex with extreme vitality. It is an apocalyptic and sublime journey, similar to the ones of other heretic artists of contemporary culture, from Jack Kerouac to Antonin Artaud, from Francis Bacon to Pier Paolo Pasolini.

Tommaso Lusena de Sarmiento is a film director and a director of photography. He works as director of photography for television and cinema alongside directors such as Franco Maresco. Since 2011 he has held filmmaking seminars at the Scuola d'arte Cinematografica Gian Maria Volonté in Rome. The Cambodian Room (2009) is his first feature documentary.

Giuseppe Schillaci is a director and a writer. In 2010 his first novel L'anno delle ceneri (Nutrimenti, Italy) was nominated for the Strega Italian Book Award and reached the final selection for the John Fante award. Among his documentaries are Cosmic Energy (Eie Film, Hot Docs Toronto 2011) and Apolitics Now! (Stella Productions, France Television).

Synopsis:

The documentary has thus become a challenge, to narrate how Antoine DAgatas life generates the power of his images.
