original title: Cuando el disparo
country: Colombia, Netherlands
running time: 4 min.
synopsisThis meditative film serves as a visual means of coping with past traumas and histories of violence. Through a simple narrative, we shift from a happy childhood filled with fun and games outdoors to a paralyzing experience of fear in adulthood. The combination of 16mm film with digital footage evokes a jarring, internal conflict.
“A key question in her work is how to deal with violence visually in such a way so it can heal colonial wounds, instead of representing it.“
