The Performing Faun is a documentary about a grotesque and dramatic life. The main character is a modern Genoese Charlot, Massimo Sannelli: a stylish multitasking artist, whose irony is public, while his desperation is private. His pain is not just economic, although the Faun is a real scavenger: he cooks rescued food and draws water from public fountain. He's intellectual, hot-blooded and sad; he's also a romancer, a lady-killer and a great gagger. When the gratuitous fun is finished, the Faun recites his best monologues and collapses. He's a reclusive character and speaks sincerely, unremittingly. He decides to close himself in his favourite environment: an old house on the Harbour front. Nature is never a problem: it's the beautiful space you can see from the roof. The torture is other people; but the hermit, the performing Faun, discovers a chance to resist a world he can't stand.
