CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2017: A STRANGE BEAUTY BY SHELLY SILVER

By Mónica Delgado

A Strange New Beauty is a film that deals with the inequity of world economics and creates a concept from that. The metaphor of a house as a closed exclusive entity which can only shelter a privileged group while the “outside” follows a savage and natural course, is the bet from which American filmmaker Shelly Silver develops a structure of ideological confrontation . An opulent empty house with big gardens clashes with an out of field auditory field, where we hear the other vein of narration, where voices and screams from a mental hospital, sighs and phrases spoken by an almost cybernetic soul, rule this different “outside”, which is sensorial and full of memory.

Por Mónica Delgado

A Strange New Beauty es una pieza que propone un concepto logrado sobre la inequidad económica mundial. La metáfora de la casa como entidad cerrada y excluyente, que solo puede cobijar un grupo privilegiado mientras “el afuera” sigue un curso salvaje y natural, es la apuesta con la que la artista estadounidense Shelly Winter desarrolla una estructura de confrontación ideológica.
