Joy in Eden

A large number of people are able to alleviate their suffering through the act of experiencing religious stimuli. In this audiovisual, a woman's path to a church is observed; the place where the main promise that religion makes to its followers is celebrated: a better life after death. During the tour, we witness a progression of random events of the woman's life, all of them in overlap (music and image), are presented drastically, without an obvious order and alluding to the trip made by women. With all of the above, it raises the idea of life as a matter that surpasses us and that we do not understand, the reason that leads many to seek this other better life, possibly after death.
