Private Project


There are many political and social reasons that lead us to emigrate from one country to another. We change the perception of our home and move our identity to another place. Then our habitat is filled with strangeness and rediscovery of shapes and sounds that make the immigrant experience an experience of transformations. "Impuls" is an experimental film inspired by the awareness of the changes in the language of the human body and its intimate interaction with the landscape from a surrealist imaginary.

Arnaldo González invites the viewer to various contemplative states through his video-creation with which he reflects on his experience as an immigrant. In his artistic work he manipulates digital images of his own body to generate visual-poetic narratives.

Director Statement

"In my artistic research I invite to the viewer to different contemplative states through video, photography and drawing. I relate to my surroundings with the feeling of intimidation in which I take images of landscapes and of my own body to make portraits and visual poetry".
