Vestitio

In a not too distant future, there has been a world-wide dictatorship that automatically defines “The System”. The power grip of this structure has been so well orchestrated and implemented that the same population does not appear to experience the bond of slavery for which it has been reduced. In such a context, contingent contingents of rebels try to oppose the appalling vice of the System. Our story takes hold of the moment when the rebel leader chooses to deliver himself spontaneously in the opponent’s arms, knowing to go to the first “Public Rieducation”, or a brainwash in the public square.

Director Statement:
METANOIA, METANOIA was originally written without any esoteric research or themes. My mission was simply to make an Italian style fantasy thriller, in the style of Dario Argento’s Inferno. After doing a bit of esoteric research, I discovered Gnosticism. I found that the myths and the themes of the Gnostics fit in eerily perfectly with my film. It truly was divine inspiration. The film was delayed, and I embarked on a 4-month deep research journey. The plot was relatively the same as the first script, but now with more meat and soul. It excited, frightened, and moved me to see how perfectly it fit-almost as if the spirits were calling upon me to make this film. Although the film remains esoteric and the riddles and mysteries are not concretely explained, all Gnostic figures and themes are accurately depicted in the film. The antiques in the film are all certified true Gnostic antiques, some of them 1700 years old. It was a joy to become forever inspired by Gnosticism and I truly believe the spirits touched this film. I hope the magic is tangible to you, the viewer. Please enjoy the dream that is METANOIA, METANOIA and perhaps you can figure out the mystery.
