Redención

Redemption

—————————————–

Los Ex Colectivo

—————————————–
Using archive footage, Redemption superimposes, intercalates, shifts and remixes a video collection where demonstrations, war bombings, industrial production, agricultural work, royal gardens, natural processes, supermarkets and gun shops illustrate the crossroads between life and death to which the search of Eden subjects us.

Redemption emerges after an unexpected call that the authors received where Armageddon is explained to them. The definition of this phenomenon gives an account of the historical processes that human beings have undertaken at the mercy of the idea of ​​a garden where there is life without death, perfection without effort and thought without opposition. The inhabitant of this Garden of Eden amnesties himself from all guilt and, in consequence, lives redempted in a free market where commodities are clean of all sin and evil for its immediate consumption.

Totem song

Canción tótem

—————————————–

Walter Escamilla

—————————————–
Totem Song is an experimental documentary film about street musicians in Europe. It parts from the idea of building an audiovisual mash-up combining and remixing different styles of beats, melodies, sounds and images that were recorded over my first trip to Europe in 2018. Here, totem is rhythm and melody. Totem are the patterns that people create over sound and movement while exploring the streets and holy places. As a visitor, for me these patterns represent the ritual of exposing oneself to European culture, absorbing all the richness in form and the infinite flow of human expression.

2020, Colombia, 4min. 25s.
