Kinetic Twin Films & Ricordata presents the first feature film by KiNo with live musical performance:
ABOUT THE FILM:
Poet of Sound and Image is a feature film with live sequences by which KiNo manifests his potential as a cultural and spiritual rebel. Booming across 7 years of documentation, KiNo’s universe bursts upon and outside the screen with a personal cinematic language and an unmistakable musical touch, unified by poetic conscience. The film is a retroactive testimony of a young poet who has, at each step of his development, consistently clashed with the symptoms of a confused civilisation; transitioning from 20th to 21st century, analogue to digital, local to global.
In the beginning, KiNo arrives in New York to embark on his creative journey… few days before September 11, 2001. At the end, through his trials and tribulations, it is revealed that the cultural, artistic and spiritual integrity of humanity is suffering greatly from a process of dehumanisation. The common denominator have been led to replace real life experiences with internet antics and gadgets. Essentially, the film is about the current condition of human psyche mangled by images, sounds and words that must be freed from the contrived conventions of vacuous industries that characterise the amnesiac Western Civilisation.
Consisting of a vast array of influences from progressive rock to disco, punk to classical music, KiNo’s songs are crafted for his distinct voice and features adventurous forms while maintaining a highly melodic aesthetic.
