DEEP WATERS

Spagna 2020 , 25'

“It is complicated to know where oral storytelling touches history. On the one hand, the voices of the women of the family that create the myth of a barely 17-year-old hero. On the other hand, official papers, signed books, and letters that reveal a kid and his fears. That he didn’t want to. Halfway, the grey area between myth and reality. How to face this space formally? The film is about how words, places, and faces are lost. Furthermore, we go deep into a filmic space more oriented towards sensations, towards darkness and dimness, where the designed  audio makes us part of unreality. […] I’m interested in the written word on paper, by hand. In this era when we are increasingly moving away from the imperfection of our hands to perfection and  cold  of  the  digital world,  it  seems  relevant  and  necessary  to  reflect  on  handwritten text.”

(Xacio Baño)
