Based on the absurdist journals of fictional Italian camera operator Serafino Gubbio, "Shoot " documents the infancy of film in Europe—complete with proto-divas, laughable production schedules, and cost-cutting measures with priceless effects—and offers a glimpse of the modern world through the camera's lens.
"Shoot , "presented here in its 1927 English translation, is a classic example of Nobel Prize-winning Sicilian playwright Luigi Pirandello's (1867-1936) literary talent and genius for blurring the line between art and reality.

Through Gubbio's narrative—saturated with fantasy and folly—Pirandello grapples with the philosophical implications of modernity.
