Actress and director Asia Argento created this mesmerising series of film shorts exclusively for SHOWstudio over the course of October 2006. The vignettes, drawing on an ad-hoc 'video diary' aesthetic but in fact painstakingly directed, intertwine reality with fantasy thanks to a script devised by Emma Forrest that confuses fiction with reality.

van 04:26 18 Oct 2006 pain is beauty of humanity, it is also our sorrow, either way, it enstills somthing greater every time. but hell, at least you didnt' put the fire out with your face. ..(i joke) drink a lot of water, herbal tea and pain relevers to help the swelling. good luck then
ampersand 07:00 18 Oct 2006 The NeverEnding Story is the one novel that has really made the biggest impact on me. My favourite quote from the film version is "It has to hurt if it's to heal." I apply that quote almost as a salve to every single type of pain I go through. One has to endure pain in order to truly appreciate pleasure. It's the balance of life.
