Experiencing Interruptions?

The breakfast

Fourteen people inhabit their own skin to witness the sunrise and share their bodies as the rising sun illuminates the space. Interaction arises between them and the main premise is to celebrate life, honor freedom and enjoyment. El desayuno invites you to embrace nudity and get in tune with nature.

Director Statement

The plasticity of painting is my accomplice and my weakness towards a strategy to explore my reality. Observation makes me aware of space, but it is through painting that I take on the world. Like the pleasure of taking off your clothes and walking nude, painting becomes an act of unfolding, understanding and eroticism. My characters emerge arbitrarily, I'm not sure if I choose them or they choose me.
