The Evil Empire
Federico Solmi (US 2009, 4:14 mins)
The Evil Empire is the title of my latest video animation. The video animation takes place in the heart of Vatic-anal City, in the year 2046. Surrounded by the glorious frescoes and wealth of his St. Peter’s Basilica apartment, a fictional Pope will be portrayed as a young man struggling with his porn addiction, similarly to all ordinary men who cannot avoid the temptation of the contemporary society. The Evil Empire is made in collaboration with 3D New Zealand based artist Russell Lowe.
