A naked man appears running along a pathway. This video is a celebration of the beauty of the male nude body as it runs in absolute freedom, in a natural and wild environment. The body movements are a powerful stimulus for the spectator to experience aesthetic pleasure and sensuality. In slow motion.
It's a shame that these days we cannot watch athletes acting and competing in the nude, as was normal in ancient Greece. Clothing obstructs and hides the view of muscles, tendons, nerves, and veins in action, and it impedes the contemplation of all those elements in a fascinating concert as the player makes movements and gestures endowed with great beauty.
DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
I was born in Vilafranca del Penedès (Catalonia – Spain) in 1959.As an audiovisual creator I have focused on the theme of the male nude since 2005,
beginning with photography and moving to video.
I published a book of photography titled “Looking” in 2008 and I have held various
exhibitions in Barcelona and Sitges (Spain) in locations of the gay scene.All my work can be seen at http://www.nus.catMy interest in the nude form in video does not only proceed from the values associated
with natural living and freedom, which although I hold these values and they are present in
my work, do not constitute its principal inspiration. For me, working with the nude form in
the video medium satisfies another, stronger need, which is to teach how to see and value
the beauty of the male body when it appears completely naked in situations and contexts
of daily life and especially when it is in motion. I believe it is important to create sequences
in which the contemplation of a nude man moving can generate a strong visual attraction
capable of seducing the spectator by the beauty of the images, and that from the aesthetic
pleasure these provoke one can, if possible, caress one's sensuality.I also believe that in order to achieve these ends it is necessary to avoid the reflection of
very elaborate movements, enacted by adequately trained dancers or athletes, and
instead to go looking, among non-professional models, for the gestures and actions of
daily life, which owing to their naturalness and freshness are potentially more stimulating.
Currently I have a doctorate from the University of Barcelona and I work in Education.I'm a teacher of history of art and along my professional life I've been very innovative, always searching for new strategies to motivate students and teachers in the classroom. In this sense, I have produced and published a lot of digital, educational games about the historical heritage, including historical buildings in virtual reality.You can see all in: http://www.xtec.cat/~ebioscaDuring those years I received very few mails from teachers and students expressing their opinions about my works. All of them were always professional comments, very correct greeting reviews, but distant and cold. My work had not touched their heart, their soul.
However, when I have started making videos about nude men, the number of received comments has been multiplied (I'm not referring to the educational world, of course), but the most important thing is that they are more emotional, more personal, and very passionate.
What can I think about this? Perhaps, among people the importance of the beauty and the sensuality is bigger and its impact is deeper than the interest for education, although the public opinion intends to convince otherwise.
On the other hand, I think that my works reflect an educational point of view. Probably a real teacher cannot escape from the influence of his daily work and his vocation. In this sense, I think my work also wants to teach to value the beauty and the sensuality emanating from the nude. Frequently there are others who make you realize this, for exemple, a fan sent me this comment a month ago referring to the movie: This is fantastic and should be shown to very young boy and girl on the edge of puberty, even during sex education in schools....
