Angelo Turetta, ‘Mondo Nuovo’, 2005, ILEX Gallery

From the set of "Mondo Nuovo", directed by Emanuele Crialese, Rome, Italy 2005.
"In the Cinecittà pool filled with a white liquid that simulates the milk a scene with Charlotte Gainsbourg is being filmed in green screen. "What I enjoy about photographing on the set is not showing the "how to" but to mix the elements invisible to the viewer with the shooting scene, including machines and objects that destabilize the already tenuous reality, creating metaphysical visions."
