The Human Fire, quite simply, replicates visual conversation I had with my 9-year old son, M. , when I came back from covering the catastrophic earthquake that struck Turkey. I did it showing him my photos. Not all. He was struck by the night ones, mostly showing humans huddled around fires in front of the rubble that had been their homes. Martino said it made him think of the primitive humans inventing fire. He had pointed to the essence. When all collapses, we turn to fire again for protection against the cold and the abyss of despair. Around those fires, rebuilding already started.
