Italy/France/Germany. Dir. Anna Marziano. 2017, 53 mins. Digital projection. Italian with English subtitles. Shooting across continents on glowing Super 8 and 16mm, artist filmmaker Anna Marziano offers a poetic, generously human meditation on the many and varied forms love can take. Working from the premise that everyone loves in a unique way, Beyond the One interweaves evocative allusions to literature, music, and cinema with a reflection on our singular/plural condition, illustrated through various ways of sharing and nourishing relationships as well as through situations where love (or the lack thereof) has become a form of pain. What emerges is a far-reaching, gracefully profound essay on the experience of human connection, a conversation recording traces of our intimate relational life and its essential ambiguity.
