Los (De)pendientes
Video | hdv | black and white | 24'0'' | Colombia / Argentina | 2016
"Sampling Argentinian critical and revolutionary films from 1956 to 2006, Los (De)pendientes offers a great step in the conception of film history. Without any words, considering the past, it tells what visual works were faithful to the real issues of their times; considering the present, it shows in which poor condition are these crucial images of life and struggle; considering the becoming, it indicates what remains to be done to reconstruct a fairest and truest history of cinema; considering eternity, it is an auratic poem of bold shadows." NICOLE BRENEZ
Colombian experimental filmmaker based in São Paulo, Brazil, has shown his films in galleries and festival in the Americas, Europa and Asia. His film "Zugang" was edited by Experiments in Cinema - DVD Collection - New Mexico, USA. In 2015 his film "Los (De)pendientes" was included in Artforum Magazine list of the best films of the year. His work received retrospective shows at Cinematheque of Rio de Janeiro, Museum of Modern Art of Medellin, Colombia and at La Neomudéjar Museum, Madrid-Spain. He defines his cinematic practice as the search of a perpetual becoming state of the image in relation with the cosmos, through the following formula: "I make cinema because I´m not a painter. I make cinema as a compositor would do."
