The director, Dino Viani, living in the region of the earthquake, was the only film maker to chronicle the rare images of the immediate aftermath of the seismic disaster into an emotionally moving poetic montage. Viani and Pimenta have collaborated before creating both film and music according to the principles of independent artwork as established by the French dramaturge Antonin Artaud in the beginning of the twenty-century and followed by John Cage, Merce Cunningham and Robert Raushenberg among others.  The event is supported by the Holotopia Art and Science Academy in the Amalfi Coast (Italy), by ASA Art and Technology in London (England), and the Walden Zero Project in New York (U.S.) and is organized by MediaFusion in Washington DC (U.S.).
