Daniel Emanuel Iglesias
Short made as a final project for the Audiovisual Language subject at the Pablo Picasso School of Art. The short is a self-portrait of the author based on a poem written in 2017, when he was still living in Fortaleza. The change of leaving Brazil and returning to Spain after six years is told subjectively through archival images. The crazy life, full of vices, disappears to make room for a quieter life in Castro de Elviña, a small town next to A Coruña. Between those two moments, the images of Fortaleza also narrate the yearning of those who stayed and the memory that not everything was that bad there.
Daniel Emanuel was born on February 9, 1994 in Lausanne, Switzerland – City in which he lived and was created until he was 15 years old. At this age he moved to Fortaleza and resided there until the arrival of the pandemic in 2020. +

Equitable relationships do not exist. They are an ambivalent exchange, binary hierarchies, a tacit agreement … in love there was violence, in survival there was death … Who can break the cycle? Things will happen as they have to. Milk. Blood. And start over.
Meus sonhos no relógio
This audiovisual piece is a collage of images that inhabit different spaces in my memory, and that during a parenthesis they spontaneously dialogued until they generated a small personal diary of what was the first semester of 2020.
The first time I saw my brother I didn’t like him and told my mum to send him back; I didn’t want such an ugly baby at home. Seventeen years later, Brthr shows his transition from the end of adolescence to the beginning of adulthood. This is a film about the search of identity and self acceptance, narrated with honesty, familial issues and complex affections that only siblings can offer.

“What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, won’t he leave the ninety-nine in the mountains, to go looking for the lost one? And when he does find it, I assure you that he is happy for the one sheep more than for the ninety-nine that were not lost. In the same way, your Father who is in heaven does not want one of these little ones to be lost.”
