The bare life takes us on a hallucinatory journey, from the incandescent setting of the confined city, where the rare survivors wander without reason, to the hospital, where the gestures of caregivers and patients carrying the virus become the rituals of life and death. Antoine d´Agata transforms these opaque spaces into a theater of men emptied of any semblance of reality and obliterates the very surface of things, the epidermis of beings and of the world, to reveal its tragic dimension.
