Watch the video!
“UNEXPECTED NEWS”, is the video presented by P(A)T through which it seeks to show the emotions felt by a traffic accident victim upon receiving the news of the death of their loved one. To do this, we summoned a group of relatives to the recording studio without anticipating the question we would ask them. Once in front of the camera, we listen to their versions and receive the impact of their gestures and reactions.
The music was recorded live in the church of Barbera del Valles (Barcelona) performed by the soprano Maria Gabriela Ceaglio from the Teatro Colón in Argentina.
One way to empathize is to put ourselves in the other’s shoes.
Making victims and their consequences visible helps to raise awareness in society to prevent road accidents.
Thank you to all the participants and everyone who made this award possible!
