Prisoner’s cinema is the phenomenon of a “light show” of various colors that appear out of the darkness. Some people also call television the cinema of the prisoners, referring those who contemplate the world from their homes. Inspired by what do we perceived through the neighbors windows, my father and I developed years ago a filter which synthesis all colors of each shot. Creating pure impressions out of fluid monochromes, it reproduce the effect of luminous and rythmic projections of a space illuminated by a screen.
