A portrait of Rome and its recent history told using sculptures in a park, in which Michael Pilz meditates at the ancient monuments, narrating without words. “Like all of the films I have made since Heaven and Earth (1982), Roman Diary is in a way a tantric exercise, as defined by one of the oldest tantric texts, the Vijnana Bhairava. If you watch a film in order to “learn” something, then this film is not for you. But if you want to test out what it is possible to experience through film, then this is the right medium for you. Using techniques such as extreme slow motion and irrational, poetic contrast, it is a tool you can use to center yourself, for it speaks more to the heart than the head. What kind of experience it offers depends on you. If you remain open with heart and mind, and accept what the film offers, it will bring you closer to your inner self. In a way, Roman Diary is a film for meditation”.
