CLAUDIO MONTAGNA (ITALY)
Duration: 70 min.
Written, directed and played
The life journey of a teenager who is not a real teenager but a symbol, a metaphorical figure in search of meaning, with a cart to sell onions and to deliver mysterious Scrolls entrusted by his father.
With a struggle between oppressed and prevaricators and the birth of Christianity as background, a micro-story following History is outlined, as a viaticum for existence. The so-called ”source Q “, the hypothetical collection of sayings that is supposed to have been used for the drafting of the synoptic gospels of the New Testament, the source of the sources, will come to life in the words and teachings that the boy will gather on the way.
A narrative recited at the table with music and figures evoked in front of an open laptop and in front of a small group of ecstatic spectators.
