The film footage consists of alternate shots to the eyes and the mouths of the above-mentioned personalities who read, in turn, the book chapters. The final part of each reading ends with a closeup to the ‘character’ who reads the last lines up to the motto ‘Stay Human’, with which Vittorio ended his chapters. Every chapter is recorded at the first take in order to preserve the emotional expressiveness of the reader. Since this work cannot be categorized as a documentary, a film, a theatrical reading or nothing we are aware of, we had to identify a genre to fit it in that we called as ‘Reading Movie’, the film of a reading.
