Our technological addiction is hard drug.
Computers are more and more powerful, techniques more and more complicated, the supply of moving images is infinite.
But old history still gives us unequalled magic.
An ancient, simple, humble magic, which touches the deepest chords of our souls.
A magic that resets our mind and puts us naked in front of the beauty of the World.
