Between Handkerchiefs and Dreams| 19mins
Director: Alejandro G Salgado | Producer: Irene Hens and Almudena Sabido
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Spain
The mask, the complement, the wig; the costume has been the tool used throughout human history to differentiate, camouflage, pretend, hide, and to show ourselves openly without being recognized. With a civil war, exile, hundreds of flights, a jumping of the fence of Melilla, sleepless nights and days without eating, Howard Jackson uses a multiplicity of characters, wearing different costumes while he is waiting for the red light at a stoplight with a basket full of paper handkerchiefs hanging from his arm. "Between Handkerchiefs and Dreams" goes beyond the search for a portrait of a man out of context and relocated by a particular society. Through the multiple characters offered by the protagonist, this story carries out a hard and humble analysis of migration, survival, loss of identity and the struggle for human dignity. The tool: a comparison between the dream sold on one side of the strait and the crushing reality of the other.
