  • “GOLD - looking for Oz” is the title of the sixty minute experimental movie that Francesca Fini wrote and directed in Israel in the month of May 2016, upon invitation of the New Media Department of the Art School in Musrara district. A performance-based art film made of symbolic actions staged around the city of Jerusalem with the participation of local artists and performers, visually strong imagery and guerrilla-like “situationism” involving the community in a game of provocations on the theme of identity and belonging. To keep all this together is the surrealistic journey of the artist herself, in the role of Dorothy Gale in search of the great and powerful Oz.

    Looking for Oz in the City of Gods? Yes. Through Mythology and Topology, Politics and Literature, magics and daily life, the sacred and the secular, a famous Bildungsroman (novel of formation) and the personal growth of the artist in the role of a grown up Dorothy Gale, overlapping a strange map conceived in a fantasy novel and the real “disputed” geography of the city.
