Description

I was happy then is a book and film that unites the cinematic spaces of Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1962 L’eclisse and the present-day reality of Siena, Italy. Through the framework of a tourist guide that focuses on topics of alienation, architecture, economy, love and urbanization, I was happy then is a critical reflection on cities that renounce the contemporary in exchange for a re-presentation of key historical periods. It expands possibilities for dissemination of written and visual content by bringing together complementary qualities of printed matter and film into a singular work.
