CINÉMA DU RÉEL 2021: ON TWO FILMS BY SANDRO AGUILAR AND JESSICA SARAH RINLAND
By José Sarmiento Hinojosa
I find myself wondering the exact meaning of “archaeology of the image”, if as this term could encompass the route I’m trying to follow when watching the latest films of Sandro Aguilar and Jessica Sarah Rinland. If by archaeology we understand the recovery or analysis of material culture, how can the image in its materiality be unearthed from its underlying presence to re-signify the use of its moments, to put in context a different narrative linked with the deleuzean idea of the image-time?
