Feature Film
Paolo Ventura: Vanishing Man
With the relics of a human life - objects found in a flea market - Italian artist Paolo Ventura fights the fleeting nature of life. In his world built out of cardboard and poster paint, he gives these found objects new life.

Paolo Ventura gave up a successful career as a fashion photographer because he just had to photograph the images that haunted him. Images that the artist had imagined as a child when his grandmother told him about her adventures during the war. In a barn on top of a secluded mountain he creates a timeless melancholic world that resonates the isolation in which he grew up.

But is it a dreamworld or a nightmare? In the documentary ‘Paolo Ventura - Vanishing man,” director and cameraman Erik van Empel creates a complex portrait of this fascinating artist and dissects the themes of Ventura’s body of work.
