Video Short film.
Inspired by the movie Gladiator where General Maximus touches the grass that is still untouched after all wars.
Grass moves in the wind. A hand gently touches the grass, sometimes hard. The sound that is heard are news from different wars, from different times, Korea, Vietnam, Word Trade Center … As if the grass are antennas that catch a flow of news in space.
