Estirar un brazo es desear

La piel de Marte
La piel de Marte is a video-essay that takes extractivism as a motive through which to talk about the sexual and international division of labor. The human body and the territory have been turned into spaces of oppression and exploitation, violently traversed by patriarchy, coloniality and class. Questioning this double conquest, dissonant voices also arise that fable and defend other worlds and possibilities.

Memoria de Emergencia
Memoria de Emergencia is an experimental-documentary project, which from the record of family conversations tries to re-build the bonds and memories that resonate in the home of the author’s ancestors and in their homelands. The two children of the family seem to passively attend a phantasmagorical encounter with the latent problems that they will have to face when they grow up: the gradual abandonment of the rural area and the problems with the cadastre reveal the material loss that the loss of human memory entails. The map is a virtualization of those who really worked the land, which collides diametrically with the present tendency to “virtualize experience”.
