Doctor Pasavento

Doctor Pasavento


Doctor Pasavento is the story of a famous author trying to disappear. Pasavento tries to follow the moral example of the Swiss writer Robert Walser, who withdrew himself from the glory of the literary world to live in his "beautiful unhappiness", in the absolute anonymity of a mental hospital. Pasavento's urge for passing unnoticed, even leads him to replace his computer and his pen with a pencil, as its tiny and light stroke makes him even closer to the final eclipse. But the doctor realizes that to be disappeared it is necessary that someone is looking for you. The bitter truth is that no one is looking for him.
