Pandemia: Flores al margen / malas hierbas

Toni Negri said that "Resistance to life" was the only possible Revolution in the face of murderous systemic capitalism.
During confinement, no one cut the "weeds". They grew free, outside the reticles, on the side of the roads. These "weeds" can mean both the protesters going out into the public space and be metaphors for experimental cinema from the 1960s in the US. Filmmakers who paved the way outside the educating gazes of capital and its media.
As a revolution of gazes that save the sensitive from the capitalist depredation of our existence with another way of looking, another way of thinking.
They are tools of battle against colonizing gazes, colonized thoughts.
A tribute to Life, to those flowers outside that left their fruits in our eyes.

Director Biography - Rrose Present

“The films of Rrose Present are like haiku: precise, ambiguous, and deeply resonant." Daniel Barnett

Rrose's films are precisely honest. Their power derives from the juxtaposition of crisply evocative rhythms and imagery that is both personal and deep.
The overall form of many of them is to begin the entrainment of thinking in one direction and then shift direction to carve a precise shape in thought. The levels of introspection this creates are like the stages in discourse.The complexity of the relationship between the direction of thought and the rhythms that propel it are wonderful.”
