From the under-exile
Spain / 2020 / 40 min (variable time)
Live performance with 2 x modified 16mm projectors
Electroacustic sound by Alfredo Costa Monteiro.
In what seams a static time, in an apparently empty space, the murmur of a collective memory is revealed between light and shadow. A field of executions, a firing wall, a vibrant land that still breathes in silence the reminiscence of civil war and dictatorship. A moved present, where exhumations are currently being held throughout the Spanish territory. Buried in one of the extended unopened mass graves, the emulsion keeps the traces of a long and deep scar, not only of the landscape but of history.
