Year of residence

2023 - 9th edition

The seed of Senda is based on encountered experiences, memories and notes accumulated in notebooks. In 2019, I travelled to Africa for the first time, for work. Mali showed me material consequences of events that I consider impossible. Since then, I reflect on and hold on to one statement: one’s own truth can come face to face with the opposite truth of another person. Even if they contradict each other, none of them can claim that the opposite does not exist. That’s why I search, I take shelter in the lights and in the darkness through cinema; where the limits between the human, the magical and the natural are blurred. I take this film in my hands and mould it so that Oihana, Agustina and Bakary acquire enough courage and vulnerability to transform each other, without ceasing to be.
