Garden for the strawflower
Colombia / 2021 / 5’
What is the measure for pain? How to complete the empty spaces that an unfair taken life left behind? Jardín para la Siempreviva is a poetic and visual journey by the debris left by the institutionality. It is channeled by the homonymous poem by writer Juan Manuel Roca, from Antioquia. The emerging images, evoked as a whisper, power the allegory of the point of view and procure an intimacy and empathy clime with a family tragedy full of complications, but that finishes with an opening to life and with a reflection on justice and the sense of institutions in Colombia.
