Tiny animals of different kinds were filmed by night and then magnified under semi-transparent spherical glasses. The activity of constantly moving organisms subjected to magnification results in unexpected images of unrest, changeability, migration and creativity in altering shapes.

„La notte salva is a path of sensations that attempts to gather around its nature without revealing it, without opening itself to any human language.“ G. Boccassini


Italian filmmaker Giuseppe Boccassini (1979) studied film theory at Bologna University and film direction in Rome. By the method of rapid editing, he assembles compilations of archival footage, often complemented by distinct music accompaniment.
