TIFF 2007. WAVELENGTHS: COCOTE BY NELSON CARLO DE LOS SANTOS ARIAS
By Aldo Padilla
Religious catharsis, a contact with God, the rhythmic movement that allows one to feel a presence that goes beyond the evident, a painful dance, shaped like a prayer. The ecstasy that the faithful reach through praises and supplications to God makes them lose their conscience, leaving aside everything that is logical. A sound marks the way to this particular nirvana, a rhythm, mix of crying, movement and all the emotions that try to get out, a strange way of celebrating death.
