Synopsis

The recent history of Sicily is transformed into a kaleidoscopic disarray of images that rob television of its mythmaking potential. The film consists partially of scenes shot by a regional television station in the town of Catania between 1991 and 1994 – an era of important political change. The contrasting and unpredictable flow of images does not draw a map of these changes, but cuts up this map into a loose collage.
