“Behind every window, there’s a story waiting to be told”
Charles Kuralt used to say.
Rome has its own stories, too. Some are kept hidden behind a curtain, others are being told everyday: along its roads, behind its fountains and by people’s gestures and their way of living life. All you need to listen to these stories is your own eyes.
It’s a project open to everyone who uses the contemporary language of social movies. It’s a total brand new insight into the Eternal City. It’s a video-installation at Pelanda-MACRO, in the heart of Testaccio, from December 14th until January 31st. Ultimately, Reaction is everything that hasn’t yet been told about Rome. And you’re going to make up to it.
Grab your smartphone, tablet or camera and film everything that gets you really excited in your city. Or else, get yourself to the screen and tell us about you! You can upload your video in one of the following categories: I love, I hate, I laugh, I cry, I play, I think, I work, I am, I eat, I move. Rome and its stories are there waiting for you.
