OPIAOPIA is a project that brings to screen the work of the urban dance group of the same name. Opia, defined here “is the ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable”. It is a film that explores this definition by using cinematographic language, creative expressions of movement, imagery, and soundscape. Director/DP/Editor/VFXPaolo A.
