Concept of the video:
At that time, the lighthouse was a silvery, misty tower with a yellow eye that opened softly at nightfall.” To the lighthouse, Virginia Woolf.
This project initiated in 2005, is a work in progress. Since then, each work trip has helped me get closer to some emblematic lighthouse that I identify, document and film. The South Atlantic video was filmed during 2011 on the Island of the States, registers the San Juan de Salvamento Lighthouse, one of the beacons that has marked the collective unconscious of humanity. This lighthouse represents the inspiration for the Lighthouse of the End of the World, written by Jules Verne.
