Short Film: I LIVE FOR YOU, 7min., Italy, Drama

“I live for you” breaks into Marco and Giulia’s daily life. Giulia is an attractive, cheerful woman; Marco, an authoritative man who arouses fascination and fear. Their relationship, between ups and downs, seems to be like many others; yet, in her memories, thoughts and silences, emerges the loneliness of a woman torn between the need for love and affective sharing and the impoverishment of body and mind, induced by his narcissistic and manipulative rigidity. Marco is leading the game: a “game” of deceptions that revolves around a lamp, a diabolical simulacrum of his dominion. The story involves a deep crisis, in which Giulia begins to doubt herself, her own memory and even her ability to perceive reality. She doesn’t realize it, but she is a victim of gaslighting, a subtle form of psychological violence and a serious violation of human rights. The epilogue, as too often happens in reality, shows neither redemption nor glimmers of salvation.
