Michael Nyman “Cine Opera”

Uncategorized

“Cine Opera” is an attempt to capture living cultures

and forgotten traditions in a format that illustrates a diaristic study of modern-day life.

Although an obvious parallel can be made

to the current reality TV phenomena in pop culture,

Nyman’s intentions go beyond the act of simple observation

and the criticism of continuous scrutiny and voyeurism in contemporary societies.

“Cine Opera” appropriates visual content from everyday life

and delivers a quirky yet brutally truthful view of the world in which we live.

The series emerges as a thorough study of our uneasy times

and attempts to reflect on the human condition in our century.
