Sélection à Locarno 2019 – Fuori Concorso

Many people throughout the world are subjected on a daily basis to insistent, aggressive and hostile voices which are inaudible to the rest of us. Arguments is a rigorous and sensitive exploration which maps out the perceptions of “voice hearers”, and their projection of the intimate onto the outside world. The film is an account of this often unexpressed deep suffering and chaotic din. It retraces intellectual means and the processes used to reveal them, give them shape and place at a manageable distance. In Arguments, "madness" is not considered as a rupture with reality, but in its relation to reality.This poorly understood phenomenon, as it is approached in the film, invites us to reflect more generally on the complexity of human experiences outside our society’s norms and their representation with the cinematographic language and audiovisual tools of today.
