With Malinconico, Mira creates a queer, magical-realist universe, in which we ourselves, along with melancholy, search for our place in coexistence. Malinconico brings comfort in a gloomy landscape, lightness in darkness, music in silence.
Malinconico is a place between what was and what could have been. A zone where light darkness and dark lightness become palpable. In which time stands still and we are overwhelmed by the great why. In which the brightness of a hazy cloud of melancholy brings things into focus.
In this onscreen landscape, melancholy itself wanders, in multiple voices speaking. Their universal dejection meanders and evolves and never comes in the same capacity or form. Yet these personifications of melancholy sound unison: we want to be allowed to be there.
