In the video Kind of Blue the director, Cecilia Bertoni, creates portraits exploring her fellow performers as people without a role, merely themselves. In a circular narrative structure, five stories follow one another, linked by an intimacy that displays itself through environment, objects and the everyday clothes of these same performers. The director explores their physical and mental obsessions and their relationship to creative act. The bathrooms of their own homes, of a hotel or a dilapidated building, become the places in which their secrets, their acts of madness and their disappointments become explicit, while a kitchen becomes the nerve centre of the creation, but also the prelude and the epilogue of an endless wait. A voice off-stage, which the viewer assumes is the narrator, is only seemingly arbitrarily connected.

In the video Un uomo solo (A Man Alone) the director Cecilia Bertoni creates a portrait of musician and long-time colleague Carl G. Beukman, investigating his physical and mental obsessions and their relationship to creative act. The eye of the camera follows him from an increasingly close-up angle and from above. In the isolated and claustrophobic space of his bathroom, immersed in a bath and surrounded by objects that increasingly reassure him, the action unfolds into a shamanic ritual. Cloaked in his own solitude, he conducts a silent and invisibile orchestra. He will emerge transformed.
