You said everything was gonna be alright
Salto Mortale


2007-2008

High in the top of a circus the young air-acrobat Carlo prepares himself for his first death-jump: the Salto Mortale. He memorizes his mother who deprived herself of her life 8 years ago. Night after night she jumped into the darkness during the Salto Mortale. Without safety lines, without a net, with nothing except for the trust in her husband Remy who, upside down on his trapeze, would grab her by her wrists at the very last moment. Until Carlo finds his father in the arms of another woman and the trust is gone. Salto Mortale is a story about the fear of death, blind trust and about the desire to live like 'every day could be your last'.
