Image for A Lack of Clarity


A Lack of Clarity


Public light rips through the night of a modern city. Sleeplessness is lit up by a computer monitor in an urban space, where day and night are no longer distinguished. A nocturnal journey through a strongly lit and populated city as a filmmaker reflects upon the increase of new surveillance technologies around him. 

Starting from videos of thermal cameras found online, a reflection goes through the changes in the contemporary city, the extension of social control mechanisms and the evolution of digital technologies to face the frontiers of a progressive expansion of the field of visible – and controllable – in the surveillance society.
