SOBRE É ROCHA E RIO, NEGRO LEO, UN FILM DE PAULA GAITÁN

Por Mónica Delgado

Negro Leo es un cantante y compositor experimental brasileño y protagonista del reciente documental de Paula Gaitán. A lo largo de dos horas y media, vemos al retratado vertir ideas, sentimientos, reflexiones; lo escuchamos tararear, cantar, y en algunos breves momentos interactuar con la cineasta y el camarógrafo. Por todo lo que expresa Leo, el despreciado talking head cobra otro sentido y se vuelve la posición del encantamiento.

DESISTFILM 2020 FILM ROUND-UP: THE LISTS/LAS LISTAS

2020 comes to an end, and with it, a great twist of the screw that seems to return the world to a primitive state, to recognize its own fragility and the precariousness of an economic / social system that falls like a house of cards. In the midst of chaos, at home, we take refuge in the light pulses of the cinema, in the rhythmic variations, in the echo of the sounds of our televisions, computers, screens. This is the record of a cinephilia that resists, that remains and reinvents itself. Within the chaos, the light of the cinema continues to shine on us.
