Myth is a video clip comprised of footage and original music, both by the author of the project. Claudio Curciotti has been researching on music in Egypt as well as collaborating with local musicians and performing artists and institutions for past 5 years. Within one of his stays, he created this video, set in a desert area on the outskirts of Cairo. The video incorporates both contemplative and narrative style. The events are portrayed just as they happened during the filming. The contemplation of the ancient, irruptions of the wild true reality and the need to hide, to escape into a dark small world, inside, to the core. These elements of the story represent in a way the story of the whole country; a place with compelling ancient heritage suffocating under the weight of a new powerful police state, with people seeking ways to escape or hiding themselves in a dark depressive post-revolution mood.
