Under the name of Mephistopheles, Anagoor puts together the video footage collected between 2012 and 2018 by Simone Derai e Giulio Favotto in a single journey for images through light and pain of the world, put to music in a symphonic live set by Mauro Martinuz. Mephistopheles is a Grand Tour in the dark areas of the universe, where light and pain of the generations are together, where the relationship of men and animals with nature, eros, time and technique is investigated. A great story made of images, in a gem of cinematography.
