Comrade Alfredo Neri

The film Comrade Alfredo Neri is about visual manipulation; it demonstrates how motion picture, in all its forms can drag us into or out of something, how it affects our feelings and helps shaping our opinion.
It wants to show how a camera can transform an ordinary man into an unpleasant character by the use of special light, filter and sound effect.
The video was meant to raise awareness, not of the Neo Nazi movement only, but of the media's participation in shaping our world-views and opinions.
As an activist video Comrade Alfredo Neri is our reflection on the media and on some level its loss of neutrality and independence.

Hey Khaled

But the timeline is short. I gave them contact details but they say they couldn't get in touch
