More About the Film

Places We’ll Breathe is an audiovisual essay that advocates imagination through a travelogue of constructed and anonymous landscapes. It is a note about the future. Narratives that intertwine in the interstices between the visual, the auditory, and the expressed, speak about loss, exploration, presence, vigilance, responsibility, struggle and freedom.

Davor Sanvincenti (1979) is specifically interested in a field of audiovisual phenomenology and anthropology of visual culture, particularly focused on the conditions and forms of human senses and perceptions. His practices find form in a variety of media – film and video, photography, physical light and sound installation and live media performance. His work plays with the concept of illusion, exploring the possible boundaries of perception and the construction of experience.
