Experiencing Interruptions?

El sonido del viento en tierras de nadie

"The sound of the wind in no man's land" are the voices and testimonies of migrants, coming from and displaced to different contexts, for different reasons, with different realities; but all with feelings in common that leads them to reflect on their own condition of "other", accompanied by videos of territories of passage obtained in Google Earth. Along the way, where everything reconstructs its meaning because the contexts are a roulette of events that do not stop, we want to use the name of the wind because it becomes the vehicle of those stories, which are as ephemeral as they are transcendental, like the dreams, doubts, hopes and stories of the people who move in the transit territories between all these countries, on a path as distorted as its rules. In the end, questioning reality from this aesthetic point of view becomes a way of seeing, without stopping trying to shape it, because fear begins when the forms of reality are deconfigured towards what cannot be predicted.
