MEDEA'S VISIONS: A MULTIDISCIPLINARY PROJECT WITH ORIGINAL VIDEOS AND MUSIC COMPOSED BY CRISTINA BARZI AND OTHER MUSICIANS.
Medea’s visions is a project for five short films dedicated to Medea, filmed by five different directors, dedicated to women dreams.
The projection of the five videos is interposed by text. One of them is the Medea written by Dario Fo and Franca Rame, an ironic monologue that revisits the passages of the myth, with women Trying to convince Medea, that this is the law of humanity: every man will be attracted by a younger woman. Medea speaks of her dreams, and about women dreams questioning herself and us: Do we have the right to dream? Or is it better to stay immovable? What is Law? What is religion? Why do we allow to law and religion to rule our intimate life?

The first video / vision is a reflection on the reason why Medea refuses her children. Medea dreams his/her man with another woman and decides to lose the baby that she is going to have.
When Jason leaves the house because he wants to be with a younger woman, Medea has a dream/VISION: she is pregnant and wants to have an abortion but three women (representing law and religion) try to persuade her not to do it. Medea melts past and present visioning him with the younger woman and identifying herself to her.
