After Violence| 28mins

Focus Years: 2009 | Country: Spain
This is an approach to the subject of violence. A multiple, complex, fractured approach, where both speech and form are taken to its limits. These piece connects the different speeches of a group of teenagers and experts on some aspects of the matter. The whole movie is surrounded by some questions: who is speaking about the violence? Who are those here speaking? What experiences have they had? How have these experiences constituted them? These questions enable the possibility of univocal communication of the audio-visual image, introducing subjective elements there where we would expect objectivity: expert speech, conventional setting and recording, synchronized sound. This is, of course, a critical attitude toward current media, but not against the people speaking themselves, though somehow they are recovering their complete personality with this structure. Sound and image are directly related to the sense and meaning of the words but not distinguishing between it and its form.
