By Ivonne Sheen

Two films about desire compete in the 2019 Cinéma Du Réel, both of them encompass the masculine ways of desire and coincidentally are directed by women film directors: the long feature A Wild Stream (2018, Mexico) directed by Nuria Ibañez Castañeda (…) and the short film Those who desire (2018, Spain) directed by Elena López Riera, who with a poetical sense, portraits a metaphor of desire by an observational approach to the colombicultura (training of birds) practice in her natal town Orihuela, Spain.

CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2019: BERLIN BASED DE VINCENT DIEUTRE

Por Mónica Delgado

Vincent Dieutre realiza una sinfonía urbana a punta de melancolía, nostalgia y esperanza desde la mirada de un grupo de migrantes artistas europeos en Berlín.

Por Mónica Delgado

En el cortometraje Parsi (2018), Teddy Williams y el poeta Mariano Blatt prolongan cualquier posibilidad del poema ensayo, o del video poesía, para establecer una correspondencia extraña entre los ritmos de versos pop y la cadencia visual de una cámara en libertad dada a los personajes para que la hagan vivir.

CINÉMA DU REEL 2018: DREAMING UNDER CAPITALISM BY SOPHIE BRUNEAU

By Ivonne Sheen 

Deleuze adapts Foucault’s disciplinary societies’ theory to the contemporary ethos, and describes our context as societies of control. The difference resides in the form of the forces that are applied to citizens, that is to say workers. In contemporary societies, control is related to numbers and to monetary flow. In this way, increasing our skills and at the same time submerged in an infinite competitive spiral, that don’t give us an end until we maybe become rich or die. Thriller way of life, that is ours, that is capitalist way of living.
