Director’s Statement / Declaraciones del Director:

In 2019 I began experimenting with a 1970s Super 8 camera as a way to rebel in a world where digital devices turned taking pictures and videos into almost a mindless action, taking away the uniqueness of capturing a moment in space and time. Working without a script, this short film is in itself a performance art piece: an ideal format to collaborate with Natacha Voliakovsky, a performance artist I admire and with whom I’m proud to have been able to collaborate in this short.

En el 2019 empecé a experimentar con una cámara Super 8 de los años 70’s como una reacción a un mundo donde los dispositivos digitales nos dan la habilidad de tomar cuantas fotos y videos queramos, eliminando lo especial de capturar un momento único e irrepetible en tiempo y espacio. Al no tener un guión, este corto es en si una pieza de performance art, un formato ideal para colaborar con Natacha Voliakovsky, artista de performance a quien admiro y con quien me enorgullece haber colaborado en este corto.
