Don't Lie 
Directed by Daniele Sarti, Brooklyn, NY, 4:21

Shared solitude. Spacial Geometry and emotional trajectories. A dilated world and, at the same time, resolved in between periphery and horizon, skyscrapers and ocean. A polaroid of a suspension in between past and present. Different times. The video tells the delicate and melancholic story of a promise between two teenagers, the promise to Don’t Lie to one another. The alienated neighborhood in its routine, squash courts, projects, and slow movements. But the shore is in front of them, the ocean and the horizon and a whole world of untold feelings, on the edge of their futures.
