CATS HAVE AN EXCEPTIONAL PERIPHERAL VISION. WHEN CENTRAL VISION WORKS AS A LINEAR SPOTLIGHT FOCUSING THE WHOLE ATTENTION ON ONE SPOT, PERIPHERAL VISION WORKS GRASPING MULTIPLE INPUTS AT ONCE; THIS RESEMBLES THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CONSCIOUSNESS AND UNCONSCIOUSNESS. CAN HUMANS EXPAND THEIR PERIPHERAL VISION?
Covid-19 has given many of us the opportunity for some pretty deep soul-searching, both on a personal and a global level. And that’s exactly the level that Great Guns director Frankie Caradonna’s short film ‘Peripheral Vision’ is working on. Philosophical ponderings on humanity explore how isolation could be the change in perspective which alters humanity’s direction for good. It’s deep stuff.
It’s also a beautiful film, brilliantly demonstrating what is possible for a creative person with relatively few resources (and a little moral support from a lover and a cat). Considering Frankie and his companions are locked down in a small apartment in Milan, the film doesn’t feel nearly as claustrophobic as you might expect.
