Ianua is a woman blinded by her faith in Christ. She lives alone in her grand mother's house, which, since the old woman's death Ianua has obsessively transformed into an intimate museum of Christianity. After years of devotion Ianua becomes aware of a superior force, which reveals her real nature to her.

Artist Statement
Vincenzo Onnembo is an italian filmmaker and cinematographer from Napoli currently based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

After studies in graphic design and multimedia he decided to see the world through lens-based tools, becoming an image hunter. A strong interest in anthropology led him to explore his own roots, producing film and photography works, which survey the devout yet superstitious sphere of the Neapolitan people.

Themes in his work include religion, nature and local traditions, conveyed in modes including narrative abstraction and experimental soundscapes. His recent films investigates faith, devotion and life in rural communities, addressing their detachment from the modern world, which determines the preservation of traditions.

Through folk tales and locally inherited stories, he attempts to picture the holy, the transcendental and sublime atmospheres of spiritual ecstasy in catholic ceremonies as well as their relationship to pagan rituals, shamanism and black magic.
