Description

Jump, Essaouira series This still frames from the video "Shadows" have been modified, the photo has been pixelized, so that up close it is not decipherable but with the distance it becomes clearly visible: children jumping from different heights in the port of Essaouira. In the video we see how children jump while the fishermen continue with their work, the women walk, the seagulls fly and the construction works of the port continue. The past and the near future are mixed. We are transported to a twisted view of the scene. Black and white images and sound enhance tension and duality. scene quality: game and danger, real and unreal. The video has been exhibited in several museums, galleries and festivals: Rooftop lms, New York (United States), IFFR, International Film Festival Rotterdam (Netherlands), International Video Art Festival of Camagüey (FIVAC) (Cuba), L’Alternativa Independent Film Festival, CCCB, Center de Cultura Contemporani, Barcelona, (Spain), Projector, Madrid (Spain) European Film Festival Palić (Serbia), International Short Film Week Regensburg (Germany), Shnit Worldwide Short lmfestival, Bern, Switzerland
