VIOLENCE. FRONTAL NUDITY (male and partial female). I give it an R for the violence and M* for the Nudity. Meant for Teens and Adults. *Mature
Could it be the primitive side is just a dream where revenge and justice finds its way to the surface. Walk the path and breathe the breath of the Bow as you follow her on her path. Acting on every breath she takes. This film is intriguing and raises ethical questions. If based on a fictional story that is real, is she just, or is it her path that leads her in all the acts she performs. Gives one a puzzle and will awaken a reaction. What that will be depends on the viewer, I think.
Open up to full screen. Turn up the volume and get absorbed in the completeness of what you will see and experience with all your senses.
“This is a short film about a girl who’s trying to attune her breathing to the movements of her bow, arrow after arrow. But her sporting talent hides her need to retrieve a primitive, violent instinct, an archetype.”
“My Bow Breathing” “IL RESPIRO DELL’ARCO”
from Enrico Maria Artale
You better turn off the lights. And raise the volume!
