BERLINALE 2021: FILMS BY ANA VAZ, FERN SILVA, SOHRAB HURA AND KIM MINJUNG

By Monica Delgado

In this article I have grouped films seen in the Berlinale’s Forum Expanded and Encounters section, beyond their postulates, since although almost all are supported by premises, theses or concepts of a political or social nature; they explore various expressive options confronting presumptions or canons of the audiovisual language itself. Quoting Wallace Stevens or Hollis Frampton, tracing the spatial route between a volcanic eruption and stellar immensity or attending a lunar rite in the midst of the waves, they intertwine various creative outings with certain notion of déjà vu.

MEDIA CITY FILM FESTIVAL 2017: CAMILO RESTREPO, HELENA GIRÓN AND MANUEL DELGADO, ANA VAZ

By Aldo Padilla

“I came to Comala because I was told that my father lived here, someone named Pedro Páramo”. That’s the start of the Juan Rulfo novel, which is a search of a ghostly figure in a town which seems to be a strange representation of limbo. Meanwhile, the questions about the land where the dying live arises, and also the question if the land itself is dying, a land whose blood circulates in form of lava, that from time to time needs to depurate some wounds through volcanos.
