The Best of Salieri


60 min /DCP/16:9/ 5.1


A manifesto film mocking the system and the thirst for fame.

It is time to get out of the closet and show the world your teeth. The director, who considers himself to be Mozart, has been tootling with his films on the festival circuit for years, waiting for a big breakthrough. For an inexplicable reason, the world has not recognised his talent. Still, only Salieris have garnered the fame and the fortune. There is a simple conclusion. The world has not learned anything in 200 years and keeps repeating the same mistake.

If all else fails, justice must be established by force and the world shown its proper place. Taking a bath, the great director is hit by a divine revelation - a manifesto is born to open the world's eyes. The megalomaniac embarks on a crusade against a large and monstrous enemy, the system. This film will end the rule of the patron saint of all mediocre creators, Salieri, once and for all.
