(S8) MOSTRA DE CINEMA PERIFÉRICO 2018: SHORT FILMS FROM GALICIA

By Mónica Delgado

In Pezas imposibles, Lara and Noa Castro realize an immersion to the materiality of bodies inside the water. Through 14 minutes we’re witnesses of the registry of an inverted submerged camera in a lake where two women dance and swim, in almost all moments with the head on surface. This resource of inversion, allows us to imagine the natural terrain of these bodies, the water, while their heads, breathing outside, seem to be subjected to a type of pressure or torture. Thus, the atmosphere that the young sisters create through this kind of new arrhythmic and unreal dance, points to achieve a total abstraction, despite the cuts, in the nine chapters or fragments that look to give a narrative to this freedom of the female bodies under the water.

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.
