INSTRUCCIONES PARA CUANDO YA NO ESTÉ

What would happen if we could be someone else for a moment and leave aside what we think is the core of ourselves for just a second? In a mimesis exercise, a group of young people from Medellín plays at exchanging part of their daily lives. Their only guide is one object and a set of instructions for living in that apparently alien world. While each of them visits and discovers the “new world” they have been assigned to, the group collectively builds the story of a fiction film where they play the main characters. During the creation exercise and by inhabiting the new skin, they discover that many of their stories are shared.

MONTE TROPIC. UNA HISTORIA DEL CONFINAMIENTO.

Agadiri and Oussama, two Moroccan friends, laze around and survive while the camera scans their bodies and faces. Both have been in Spain for a short time and face a supposedly temporary situation, which must culminate in the definition of their future in the midst of the pandemic. But things are not that simple at all. Filmed indoors, Monte Tropic travels little by little towards a more undefined and dreamlike space to question the memories and desires of these young people, whose inactivity claims the right to be above the nefarious political use of their situation.

 

Participants:  Oussama Kacimi, Abdoul Panam, Ayoub El Marnissi, Gissela Paredes González, Cesar Andrade (King Manaba), El Mejdi Habiby, Eduard Ballesté Isern, Margot Mecca, Derek Torrejón Gómez, Bairon González.
